Derek G. Ludwin

Derek Ludwin advises domestic and international clients on their most important and complex antitrust litigation, criminal cartel and civil government investigations, ventures, licensing, and compliance issues.

Mr. Ludwin has significant experience helping clients successfully navigate international antitrust cartel matters and other government investigations, and has built a record of achieving positive outcomes. He provides global strategic advice on amnesty and other defense considerations in multi-jurisdictional investigations, devises effective strategies to manage internal investigations and follow-on lawsuits, and helps clients minimize the impact of these matters on their business operations.

Mr. Ludwin represents leading clients in the electronics, defense, aviation and transportation, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and sports industries. His clients recommend him for his antitrust litigation skills, his focus on client interests, his pragmatic approach to favorably and promptly resolving disputes, and his ability to work effectively with both business and in-house legal teams. Mr. Ludwin regularly represents the National Football League in complex antitrust litigation, including a recent class action that was dismissed at the pleadings stage. Mr. Ludwin is also national counsel to a leading electronics manufacturer in In re TFT-LCD Antitrust Litigation, a multi-district case involving class, opt-out, and state attorney-general lawsuits.

Mr. Ludwin, a vice-chair of the ABA Section of Antitrust Law’s Corporate Counseling Committee, is frequently sought out by his clients for guidance when they are considering significant ventures, licensing arrangements, and other transactions with potential antitrust issues. They also rely on him to advise them on compliance program implementation and to provide training to their senior executives and key employees.
