Esteemed Antitrust Attorney Greg Wells Joins V&E as Counsel
Vinson & Elkins LLP continues
to expand its global Antitrust practice with the addition of new counsel Greg
Wells, who has nearly two decades of experience representing clients in the
technology, pharmaceutical, chemical and financial services sectors on complex litigation
and compliance matters.
Wells comes to V&E from Morgan
Lewis & Bockius LLP, where he was of counsel in the firm’s antitrust
practice group. He is based in V&E’s Washington, D.C. office alongside
former Morgan Lewis colleagues Hill Wellford and Darren Tucker, who joined V&E as
partners earlier this year.
“Greg is a seasoned attorney who
adds value and strength to our nationally recognized antitrust practice,” said Craig Seebald, who co-leads V&E’s
Complex Commercial Litigation practice group and serves as Managing Partner of
the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. “We are pleased to welcome him to V&E
and look forward to his contributions to the firm and our clients.”
Wells focuses his practice
on representing companies in private antitrust litigation and government
investigations as well as cutting-edge state and federal antitrust and
distribution compliance issues, including licensing and use of intellectual
property. In addition, Wells has extensive experience opposing class
certification in private antitrust and consumer protection class actions,
including working extensively with economic and industry experts.
As an active member of the American
Bar Association’s Section of Antitrust Law, Wells has served as vice chair of
the Books and Treatises Committee, editorial board
member for the Annual Review of Antitrust Law Developments, project
chair for the Antitrust
Class Actions Handbook and as the editor and a principal author for the
class certification chapter in the Indirect Purchaser Litigation
“V&E is the perfect fit for me
and my clients,” said Wells. “I am especially pleased to be a part of the
firm’s highly regarded antitrust practice, which has a strong global platform
and deep roster of impressive lawyers, including my friends Hill and Darren.”
Wells earned his law degree from
Georgetown University Law Center and holds an undergraduate degree from the
University of California, Davis.

recognition in Chambers
