Global Competition Review (GCR) has honored WilmerHale's Antitrust and Competition Practice with the award for Litigation of the Year–Cartel Defence, during the GCR Annual Awards Ceremony on April 10.
The firm received the award for its representation of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, the largest German airline and one of the largest airlines in Europe, in a preliminary hearing before the English High Court. The WilmerHale team in London, led by Partner Duncan Speller and Special Counsel Cormac O'Daly, helped Lufthansa strike out more than half of the alleged value of a damages claim. The award was shared with counsel for the other 14 defendant airlines who are party to the ongoing proceedings.
WilmerHale partner Frédéric Louis attended the GCR ceremony and received the award on behalf of the firm.
