According to Chambers USA and Legal 500 US, Debevoise’s Antitrust Group combines “strong transactional expertise with considerable strength in handling complex litigation,” to provide “well-rounded services…across a wide range of industries.” Whether responding to a government investigation, defending a price-fixing class action, obtaining approval of a multinational acquisition or representing an antitrust plaintiff in court, the Group provides clients with timely, focused advice and a dedicated team to address their needs. Clients view Debevoise antitrust lawyers as powerful and effective allies who are “incredibly hard-working and skilled at devising strategies,” according to Chambers USA.
The Antitrust Group is part of the firm’s Litigation Department, which, in the words of Chambers USA, is “praised unanimously by clients for its efficient cost-effective approach.” The Antitrust Group applies this combination of antitrust knowledge and litigation experience to gather and analyze the information needed to understand its clients’ businesses and to determine the right approach to achieve their goals efficiently, whether managing the cascade of litigation that can follow a government investigation or obtaining approval of corporate transactions from competition authorities in the United States and internationally.
The firm’s antitrust work has involved a wide variety of industries, including Internet product distribution, financial services, cable television and other media, pharmaceuticals, alcoholic beverages, consumer products, airlines, automobile rentals, mining and manufacturing.
