Chicago antitrust star Amy B Manning continues to lead a four-partner group at McGUIREWOODS. Sarah Zielinski was promoted in January; longtime partner Richard Rappaport officially retired in June; and two associates departed in 2016 as well.
The firm remains one of the most active at the bar, with representations in federal court and before the agencies. It wrapped up private litigation for Horizon Lines in 2015 after the client was targeted in the DOJ’s freight transportation investigation. It is also advising UnityPoint Methodist Health in a civil lawsuit alleging exclusive dealing and monopolisation claims. Meanwhile, McGuireWoods was appointed co-liaison counsel in the polyurethane foam antitrust class action, where it advises Carpenter.
