For creative, strategic and innovative litigation on behalf of a defendant in a private action for cartel damages, another cross-border team of Latham litigators took home the 2017 GCR Award for Litigation of the year – Cartel defence. The firm was honored for securing favorable settlements for its client in several civil class actions related to the global investigations into alleged price fixing within the auto parts industry.
