Global Competition Review (GCR) has ranked O’Melveny & Myers LLP as “Highly Recommended” in the regions of California, New York and Washington, DC.

GCR recognized O’Melveny’s current defense of Google against four antitrust cases brought by a game developer, 36 state attorneys general, and punitive classes of consumers accusing the tech giant of illegal monopolization through its Google Play Store.
