Mr. Blechman has assisted multinational corporations in formulating and implementing measured and principled strategies to maximize recoveries in connection with global cartel claims. Mr. Blechman's cartel practice spans the U.S. and Europe, and involves him in proceedings incident to competition enforcement actions by the U.S. Department of Justice, the European Commission and agencies in the Far East. Mr. Blechman also has prosecuted or defended domestic conspiracy or monopolization cases involving telecommunications, electronic payments, airlines, shipping, generic drugs, construction and telecommunications.
