Crowell & Moring LLP

14 January 2010

At Crowell & Moring LLP, partners Randolph Smith and Robert Lipstein co-chair the firm’s antitrust group. They work alongside Christopher Ondeck and 15 other partners in the Washington, DC group.

The team is representing long-standing client AT&T on its $2.8 billion acquisition of Centennial Communication. It is also acting for Rio Tinto, one of the world’s largest mining companies, on its $761 million sale of the Jacobs Ranch coal mine to Arch Coal.

This year, Crowell successfully advised UnitedHealth Group and Sierra Health Services, when the American Medical Association and the Services Employees International Union challenged the merger of the health companies.

The firm also advises Via Licensing and the Open Patent Alliance, on the intersection between antitrust and IP law, including standards setting, licensing, and patent pools.

On the cartel front, Crowell represented SAS Group in both the DoJ’s air cargo cartel investigation and the resulting class action civil litigation.
