We have significant experience and expertise in antitrust litigation, including the defense of class actions and the pursuit of opt out (direct action) plaintiffs claims for companies. For specific cases, please see the description in Mr. Ahern's bio.
We have significant experience in representing companies in post-acquisition claims for indemnification and breach of representations and warranties. In one notable case, Mr. Ahern was co-lead counsel for the defendant in Zeigler Coal v. BP America. After trial, there was a judgment for BP pursuant to which BP did not pay any money.
We have significant experience representing U.S. and Asian companies in the role of a de facto outside General Counsel, representing clients in all of their matters. This includes general corporate advice (working with corporate and M&A counsel), commercial advice (with respect to distribution and other commercial agreements), general intellectual property advice (working with IP counsel), and litigation representation and risk management advice.
