Weil’s Antitrust practice was ranked among the “Global Elite” by Global Competition Review for both its Antitrust M&A and Antitrust Litigation achievements in the 16th edition of the GCR 100. The publication lauded the practice’s ability to handle multi-jurisdictional matters, and, in particular, its high proportion of former enforcers within its ranks that can offer clients “deep insight into the merger review process” and “substantive analysis” into transactions.
Weil received a top 10 ranking in GCR’s Mergers category for guiding more than 30 multibillion-dollar deals last year alone. Among other highlights of Weil’s transactional work, GCR noted the Firm’s counsel to Actavis in its $66 billion acquisition of Allergan – a transaction which was closely reviewed by the FTC.
GCR also recognized Weil’s cartel work representing clients such as American Airlines, ExxonMobil, Panasonic, and, most recently, Bridgestone Corporation and its subsidiary in a DOJ criminal antitrust investigation into the sale of anti-vibration rubber components for automobiles.
Weil’s private litigation practice was also recognized as “stellar” and noted for its representation of Hilton Worldwide in a federal multidistrict antitrust litigation in which it secured a complete dismissal for Hilton.
The GCR 100 is a guide to the world's leading competition law and economics practices.
