Winston & Strawn

16 March 2015

United States: New York

High-profile antitrust litigation is the bread and butter of the 10 partners that make up Winston & Strawn’s New York antitrust practice. Headed by former Dewey & LeBoeuf heavyweights Jeffrey L Kessler and A Paul Victor, the group is dealing with around 10 major cartel investigations and their ensuing private lawsuits. An example is the sprawling car parts probe – Winston & Strawn is acting in five different multi-district litigations for three companies: Panasonic, Nippon Seiki and NTN Bearing.

The firm is also involved in the cathode ray tube and optical disk drive matters for more than one party, and is representing almost half of the defendants in the batteries cartel case. There are also the compressor, power cables and potash litigations being run out of the New York office – the list goes on. Winston & Strawn also acted in a full-bench trial regarding credit card companies’ use of arbitration clauses to hinder competition, one of only two major civil trials this year.
