Karen DunnPaul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

One of the US’ leading antitrust trial teams’, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP‘s deep bench was further strengthened in June 2020 by the arrivals of William Isaacson and Karen Dunn from Boies Schiller Flexner LLP. The former recognized for his expertise in actions facing social media and digital platforms, whereas the latter has experience in both defense and plaintiff-side mandates. Jointly leading the group are financial services expert Aidan Synnott and hi-tech specialist Andrew Finch in New York, alongside Washington DC-based Rick Rule, ‘one of the most renowned figures in the US antitrust field‘. Also in Washington DC, Kenneth Gallo is rated for his robust IP-related antitrust practice and Joseph Bial impresses with his experience of international cartel and anti-monopoly cases. Key workflows for the team include cases alleging monopolization, price-fixing, predatory pricing, bid-rigging and exclusive dealing. In September 2020, Jonathan Kanter, former co-chair of the group, left the firm to launch his own law practice in Washington DC.
