US Courts Annual Review: First Circuit (Global Competition Review — Edition 2)

Providing a detailed dive into key antitrust decisions from across the US over the past year, separated by court or circuit, Global Competition Review’s “The US Courts Annual Review” delves into the regional differences in antitrust litigation in the US, as well as the national trends that bring them together.

Goodwin Antitrust + Competition partner Christopher Holding and Appellate Litigation partner Brian Burgess author the Review’s chapter on the First Circuit, providing an essential tool for understanding both the nuances and the core trends in antitrust litigation in the US.

Over the past year, Goodwin’s Antitrust and Competition practice has grown exponentially with the addition of partners, counsel and associates. With a roster of former government officials, business counselors, and seasoned trial lawyers, Goodwin’s Antitrust and Competition practice works collaboratively with the firm’s business law, intellectual property, SEC, white collar defense, and appellate lawyers. Through this unique collaboration, we are well-armed to advance our client’s interests before federal and state courts throughout trials and appeals, the United States Federal Trade Commission, the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, state attorneys general, and competition law enforcers abroad. Over the past several years, our lawyers have represented clients in private antitrust litigation, government investigations and litigation, and licensing disputes with competitors, among other matters.

Additionally, Goodwin’s Antitrust and Competition practice has advised clients — from the largest Fortune 500 companies to emerging growth companies — on more than 2,500 transactions before US and international antitrust agencies. The team has successfully defended hundreds of matters through the Second Request process and other intensive government investigations.
