Chambers' comments:

USA Ranking: 3

The Firm: Litigation has historically been this firm’s gateway into the antitrust world, but a stellar profile in the private equity and venture capital spheres has boosted its transactional experience and it now operates “a substantial antitrust practice for significant clients.” Recent work has included merger advice to Concord EFS, SC Johnson and United Airlines, and monopolisation litigation for AOL and Netscape. Nationwide cartel cases are the team’s forte, and it often combines its civil, criminal and appellate expertise for a seamless performance in complex situations. The “open communication” between lawyers and clients is another draw, as is the firm’s geographical reach. The well-integrated group numbers around 100 lawyers in Chicago, DC, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, with international support from London and Munich.
