The American Lawyer names Dan Brockett and Steig Olson 'Litigators of the Week'

Firm News

Quinn Emanuel partners Dan Brockett and Steig Olson have been named ‘Litigators of the Week’ by The American Lawyer after this week, following six years of antitrust litigation, securing a proposed $499 million settlement with banks Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan and UBS, as well as EquiLend - the company the plaintiffs claimed the banks monopolized to corner the securities lending market and prop up the fees they could charge there. The settlement, which comes after an earlier $81 million proposed deal with Credit Suisse,  is a rarity in antitrust settlements involving only private plaintiffs, as it includes forward-looking measures meant to promote competition in the market.

Congratulations to Dan, Steig, and the rest of the team on this monumental result!
