Global Competition Review: California’s Antitrust Bar

October 22, 2018

Global Competition Review (GCR) ranked the best antirust practices of the West Coast, naming O’Melveny a “highly recommended” practice. GCR recognized O’Melveny partners Bo Pearl, Michael Tubach, Kenneth O’Rourke, Dan Petrocelli, Randy Oppenheimer, and David Marroso, as well as counsel Stephen McIntyre.

“While O’Melveny & Myers doesn’t name an official chair of its California antitrust practice, Bo Pearl and Michael Tubach are two key partners based in the state, while Kenneth R O’Rourke maintains a presence on both coasts. Who’s Who Legal: Competition nominees Tubach and O’Rourke win rave reviews from rivals. The group punches above its weight and is seen as a top-shelf choice for investigations and litigation … The firm also has a new generation of lawyers doing partner-level work, such as Stephen McIntyre, who is counsel in the Los Angeles office … Litigation partners Dan Petrocelli and Randy Oppenheimer led the successful defence of AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner against the DOJ’s challenge, which is currently on appeal … Petrocelli along with David Marroso also represents Global Music Rights, a licensing organization designed to compete with BMI and ASCAP, whose royalty rates are being challenged as anticompetitive.”
