United States: Government Antitrust

Partners Randolph Smith and Robert Lipstein lead Crowell & Moring’s 64-strong antitrust group in Washington, DC. Lipstein says the team continues to hunt for yet more talent and that it’s among the firm’s “strategic imperatives” to grow the group.

Partner Arthur Lerner specialises in antitrust health care matters. He says work is intensifying since the US health-care reform, which will lead to more consolidation in the sector, and he expects an increase in counselling for health insurance providers and hospitals to help them navigate the recent policy changes.

The litigation docket is heaving, as the firm continues to represent defendants and plaintiffs in the markets for foam compressors, cathode ray tubes, air cargo, liquid crystal display and auto filters, as well as handling various agriculture lawsuits. The firm is co-counsel to AT&T with Arnold & Porter on its headline-grabbing purchase of T-Mobile. The team is also handling the plaintiff’s work for AT&T, Motorola, Target and others in the LCD multi-district antitrust class action. The team has also advised CSX Transportation in the rail freight fuel surcharge class action, and Oracle - formerly Sun Microsystems - in the DRAM case. DuPont and Yamaha are also clients.
