Dennis J. Lynch practices in the firm's business and commercial litigation group and as a member of the group's antitrust team. The majority of his practice is devoted to complex civil and antitrust litigation.
His antitrust litigation experience includes both defending against and prosecuting nationwide and regional antitrust claims, both in the private and class action context. Dennis has represented clients in antitrust matters involving a diverse array of businesses, including ocean shipping, textiles, herbicides, air cargo, timber, food products, transportation and transportation logistics, polyurethane foam and bedding. The primary focus of Dennis's practice is on representing, as plaintiffs, companies that 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. His clients range from major Fortune 50 companies to small privately-held businesses.
In addition to his complex business and antitrust work, Dennis' practice also includes trucking and transportation litigation, as well as representing the governmental litigation interests of corporate clients. He also serves as co-chair of the firm's trucking and transportation practice group.
Dennis received his B.A. in English from Villanova University in 1986, where he was a member of the Honors Program and of the Dean's List. He worked as a book editor for Texas A&M University Press before attending South Texas College of Law, where he received his J.D. in 2000. While in law school, Dennis was the recipient of the C.J.S. Awards for Torts and Property, and served as a Langdell Scholar Property Instructor. He spent his last semester of law school as a visiting student at the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he argued before the South Carolina Supreme Court as a Finalist in the J. Woodrow Lewis Moot Court Competition.
