Working for Victims of Antitrust Law Violations
In 2000, David made a significant change in the focus of his practice when he moved to South Carolina to join Nexsen Pruet as Co-Chair of its Antitrust Practice Group. David leads a team of antitrust attorneys who develop comprehensive legal solutions for clients facing a wide range of issues related to federal and state antitrust laws. The primary focus of David's practice is on representing, as plaintiffs, companies which seek to recover damages because they were significant purchasers of products or services impacted by price-fixing, bid-rigging, customer allocation, and/or other violations of federal and state antitrust laws as well as competition laws outside of the U.S.
David has been the lead lawyer in many of the firm's biggest matters. David's clients range from major Fortune 50 companies to small privately-held businesses. David's clients have come to know David for his fierce commitment to delivering results in a responsive, timely, and cost-efficient manner.
David and his team also regularly advise clients on pricing policies, distribution policies, licensing agreements, competitor collaboration, and joint ventures and has prepared antitrust compliance guidelines and provided antitrust compliance training seminars for numerous clients.
Prior to joining Nexsen Pruet in 2000, David was a partner in the law firm of Howrey, LLP in Washington, D.C.
