For nearly two centuries, Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP has been known as one of the preeminent law firms in the world. Since successfully defending IBM in a landmark government antitrust case at the dawn of the computer age, Cravath continues to be the go-to firm for major antitrust litigation, investigation and regulatory work involving today’s market leaders and innovators. Headed by Christine Varney, the only person to have served as both the U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust in the Department of Justice and as a Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission, Cravath’s highly regarded antitrust practice brings to bear a wealth of experience and insight with respect to formulating global antitrust strategy, securing regulatory clearance for mergers and acquisitions, and defending against charges of anticompetitive behavior. In addition to bet-the-company antitrust litigation, the Firm is currently representing clients in several governmental investigations and providing strategic evaluation of major contemplated business combinations. Because Cravath’s interdisciplinary team of antitrust attorneys is also experienced in handling a variety of major corporate transactions and litigation related to diverse areas of law, including securities and intellectual property, the team provides uniquely comprehensive advice and representation to clients in the antitrust arena with a deep understanding of a client’s business and business realities.
