AAI Welcomes Two New York Based Antitrust Practioners to Advisory Board

The American Antitrust Institute (AAI) is pleased to announce the addition of two leading antitrust practioners to its Advisory Board. Both based in New York, Labaton Sucharow LLP Partner Greg Asciolla and Robins Kaplan LLP Partner Meegan Hollywood join the group of outstanding experts in the fields of antitrust law, economics, and business in the United States and abroad.

“AAI is honored to add Greg and Meegan to our Advisory Board,” said AAI President Diana Moss. “Their expansive and cutting edge work in private antitrust litigation has contributed to important developments in antitrust law.”

At Labaton Sucharow, Gregory Asciolla serves as Chair of the Antitrust and Competition Litigation Practice, a member of the Executive Committee, and Chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee. He focuses on representing businesses, public pension funds, and health and welfare funds in complex antitrust and commodities class actions.

Asciolla currently represents clients in antitrust matters involving price-fixing, monopolization, benchmark and commodities manipulation, pay-for-delay agreements, and other anticompetitive practices. He has served in leadership roles in the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) Antitrust Law Section, the Antitrust and Trade Regulation Committee of the New York County Lawyers’ Association, and the Committee to Support the Antitrust Laws.

Meegan Hollywood prosecutes actions involving price-fixing, unlawful monopolization and other anticompetitive practices at Robins Kaplan. She previously litigated the In re Air Cargo Shipping Services Antitrust Litigation involving a class of direct purchasers who recovered over $1.2 billion in settlements for an alleged global conspiracy in the market for airfreight services. Hollywood was recognized twice by AAI for her work on the case: Outstanding Antitrust Litigation Achievement by a Young Lawyer in 2014 and Outstanding Antitrust Litigation Achievement in Private Practice in 2016.

Hollywood currently serves on the court-appointed Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in In re Local TV Advertising Antitrust Litigation representing a proposed class of purchasers of broadcast television spot advertising against defendants who are alleged to have engaged in a scheme to artificially inflate prices in violation of federal antitrust law. Additionally, she currently represents a direct action plaintiff in opt-out litigation against two of the largest freight railroads in the country for allegedly conspiring to fix prices on rail shipments. She is the New York Pro Bono Chair at Robins Kaplan, and serves as a Vice-Chair for the ABA Section of Antitrust Law Global Private Litigation Committee.

The AAI Advisory Board consists of outstanding experts in the fields of antitrust law, economics, and business, with a focus on both domestic and international competition enforcement and policy. AAI Advisory Board members are a vital part of the organization and play an important role in helping AAI promote competition that protects consumers, businesses, and society through its research, education, and advocacy programs.
