Jim McCarthy represents clients in a broad range of business lawsuits in federal and state courts with an emphasis in antitrust and trade competition, banking and financial services, class action and multi-party litigation, business fraud, shareholder disputes, director and officer liability, professional liability and tax litigation.

Jim has assisted numerous corporations in pursuing recoveries in antitrust price fixing and market allocation cases. He successfully represented several multinational computer manufacturers in the computer memory (DRAM) price-fixing multi-district litigation and more than 200 agribusinesses, as well as several national pharmacy chains, in obtaining very favorable settlements in price-fixing litigation involving vitamin manufacturers. He has obtained multimillion-dollar recoveries through effective presentation of claims in courts and in the context of mediation and other alternative dispute-resolution procedures.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
