Description
StandoutLinklaters289109A series of solutions to problems that might have stymied the $23bn Novartis-GSK asset swap. The challenge was to dispose of two products still in development. The lawyers convinced the European Commission to market-test their solutions and allow a company from outside Europe to participate in the deal.
StandoutBerwin Leighton Paisner26989In a case that has become a model for international cartel disputes, BLP challenged the rules of international disclosure particularly around material such as evidence from whistleblowers. The firm fielded a multi-disciplinary team for National Grid, its client, to win a complex case that lasted six years and involved multiple opponents.
StandoutKing & Wood Mallesons (EU)24888The firm advised a consortium of tyre manufacturers seeking damages from cartels inflating the price of synthetic rubber. Using complex economic modelling, the firm successfully argued that cartels were liable for damages not only from their own price-fixing but also from the overall inflation of prices in the market, called “umbrella damages”.
StandoutShearman & Sterling23878In an unusual but successful strategy, the firm sued the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) over its disclosure of evidence investigating the firm’s client, BMI Healthcare. As a result, BMI did not have to make the divestment previously ordered by the CMA, and the CMA's processes around evidence handling were improved.
StandoutLatham & Watkins22769Groupement des Cartes Bancaires (GCB), the French payment card association, faced a European Commission ruling that its published pricing measures were anti-competitive. This ruling meant the commission did not have to prove that GCB's actions had any effect on the market. The firm successfully argued for the European Court of Justice to annul the commission’s decision and clarified the use of this ruling.
