Megan Jones is a California Bay Area-based lawyer who focuses on recovering damages for companies who are victims of antitrust cartels for price-fixing, tying, restraints of trade, and other competition violations. With 19 years of experience in antitrust class actions, Megan is trusted by courts to lead large and complex antitrust cases. She is known as a “trailblazer” who is “highly respected from all contingents” [1] – and, indeed, was recently praised by a member of the 2019 Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation as one of “the nation’s best lawyers in an MDL,” and heralded as a “professional problem solver. [2]” Megan prides herself on the ability to create and lead teams of lawyers of any size (having organized teams of 80 law firms, in one particular case) to create a record that either wins the case, drives settlement, and /or obtains a decision upheld at the appellate level. Part of Megan’s success is due to her belief in using diverse and inclusive litigation teams, which she has helped foster over a decade by creating and running a conference for women antitrust lawyers to exchange best practices. Megan is both reasonable and relentless. She carefully chooses her legal battles, and eschews gamesmanship for the sake of gamesmanship. Mindful of scarce judicial resources in complex antitrust cases that can last years, she develops a strategy at the outset about what particular legal issues need judicial attention and clears the board of the rest. She is highly respected from all contingents because she brings that same strategy to settlements, using her almost two decades of negotiation experience from being at Hausfeld to craft settlement strategy and terms in even the most difficult cases. Just one example of this creativity is that in one of her cases, Megan worked with and joined Select State Attorneys General to co-negotiate and jointly settle a class claim on behalf of certain states as well as the civil litigation class.
