New Antitrust and Competition Law Powerhouse Forms

Washington, D.C. and San Diego-based Law Firms Merge to Create MoginRubin LLP

WASHINGTON & SAN DIEGO--()--What happens when two antitrust heavyweights from opposite ends of the country meet? If they are like Daniel Mogin of The Mogin Law Firm, P.C. in San Diego and Jonathan Rubin of Rubin PLLC in Washington, they’d meet over some huge cases, rejoice in battles won at the Supreme Court, and then merge their practices.

Today, as they celebrate the recent high court denial of cert in Dan’s Kleen Products LLC et al. v. International Paper Company et al., allowing their $12 billion dollar class action against containerboard manufacturers for price-fixing to proceed full-steam ahead, and as they just last week had a preliminary injunction hearing in Jon’s National ATM Council, Inc. et al. v. Visa, Inc. et al. (where earlier this year the Supreme Court reversed its grant of cert on behalf of Visa and MasterCard, allowing the class action of ATM operators to aggressively pursue their price-fixing claims against the card issuers), the two are pleased to announce the formation of MoginRubin LLP.

The firm builds upon the partners’ 100 years combined experience in more than 250 antitrust cases. With offices in Washington and San Diego, and deep experience in antitrust, unfair competition, trade regulation, competition policy and advocacy, and complex business litigation, their mid-sized competition law boutique will represent and advise clients who need practical solutions to curtail anticompetitive practices.

“This was a natural match,” explained Jon, who also holds a PhD in Economics. “Dan and I have been involved in hundreds of cases concerning price-fixing, monopolization, mergers, merger disruption, bid rigging, public policy advocacy, and competition policy. We also share the same philosophy when it comes to representing our clients.”

We’re about results and we aren’t afraid to have skin in the game. Our experience allows us to quickly uncover hidden issues and focus on the evidence,” added Dan. “Whether fighting for businesses against anticompetitive rivals or optimizing recoveries for market participants, our commitment to our client’s cause drives us every day. Whether in court, before the agencies or negotiating with stakeholders, we speak the language of competition law and economics.”
