Greg Wells

Greg represents companies in high-stakes private antitrust litigation and government investigations in the U.S. and around the world, with a particular focus on single-firm conduct issues. He also advises on cutting-edge state and federal antitrust and distribution and compliance issues, including licensing and use of intellectual property. He also has extensive experience opposing class certification in private antitrust and consumer protection class actions, including working extensively with economic and industry experts.

In addition to his antitrust counseling, government investigations, and litigation practice, Greg frequently provides pro bono legal representation, including serving as lead trial counsel in litigation against the United States arising out of the loss of much of an artist’s professional portfolio while on loan to the government as part of a cultural exchange program.

Greg is active in the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law. He 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 Handbook.
