Selected Experience

  • We are representing a Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. in defense of a class action lawsuit alleging conspiracy to set the ISDAfix benchmark rate.
  • We represented T-Mobile USA, Inc. as a plaintiff in connection with antitrust claims related to a conspiracy to fix prices of LCD screens. The matter settled advantageously for our client. 
  • We represented Amazon.com, Inc. in connection with multiple class actions alleging antitrust violations in relation to the pricing of e-books. Although principal counsel for Amazon was a firm in Seattle, Friedman Kaplan’s representation included the initial discussions with the class plaintiffs through preparation of non-party Amazon witnesses at the trial.
  • We represented an American subsidiary of a Mexican company in connection with antitrust actions alleging price fixing in the rubber industry. The matters were resolved through arbitration.
