A seasoned counsellor and litigator with over forty years of experience practicing intellectual property and antitrust law.
John F. Collins is a partner in the firm’s New York office where he specializes in antitrust litigation. As part of this work, he has a significant experience in mergers and acquisitions transactions and advising clients on how to navigate the antitrust agencies that approve these transactions. He advises clients on all aspects of antitrust litigation, including representation in front of agencies and grand juries. Throughout his career, Mr. Collins has represented clients as plaintiffs and defendants in jury and non-jury civil commercial litigations in federal and state courts throughout the United States, and has represented clients in administrative proceedings before the Federal Trade Commission, the International Trade Commission, the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. He has particular expertise in the convergence of antitrust and intellectual property law. Clients rely on this expertise to allow them to be represented by one lawyer who understands both aspects of antitrust and IP law, rather than having two who only are experts in one of these areas.
