Summary

Attorney, private practice. I handle civil litigation and also advise and counsel primarily in the areas below.

Litigation

* I represent clients (both defendants and corporate plaintiffs) in antitrust litigation. On the defense side, I have represented clients in private suits, class action litigation, class action opt-out litigation, and government actions.
* I routinely work on claims involving pricing, price fixing, below-cost pricing, information exchanges, monopolization, attempted monopolization, and unfair competition.
* I often work on cases at the intersection of antitrust and competition law and intellectual property (“IP”) law -- particularly on cases involving patents.
* I have worked on the responses to numerous government subpoenas (including grand jury subpoenas), civil investigative demands (“CIDs”), and Hart-Scott-Rodino (“HSR”) second requests.
* I work on cases at all levels of the judicial system, from trial courts to appellate courts.

Counseling

I provide counseling on, among other things:

* Exclusive dealing
* Joint ventures
* Information exchange issues
* Product tying
* Intellectual property (“IP”) licensing
* Distributor or supplier terminations
* Price discrimination, resale price maintenance, minimum advertised price programs, and below-cost pricing
* Distribution system structure
* Market concentration and market definition
* The application of state unfair antitrust and competition laws
* Other related issues
