The outstanding Janet L McDavid joins practice head Philip Larson and partner Joseph Krauss in handling US clients' public and private antitrust enforcement issues, often with stunning success. The firm boasts an impressive Brussels presence as well, hosting three Who's Who nominees who handle top-tier cases before DG Comp and national authorities.

McDavid and the Hogan & Hartson team led the way for several major clients over the past year. The team guided MySpace through a music downloading deal with three major record labels, won an private antitrust suit for client Ford Motor Company, and successfully helped client Cobham buy assets of Tyco Electronics, among a host of other deals. In all, another solid year for the Hogan & Hartson team.
