White & Case (New York)
Lawyer (Partner)

Michael Hamburger is a trial lawyer in White & Case’s Americas Competition group. He has substantial experience with both civil and criminal antitrust matters. Most of Mike’s career has been devoted to defending companies in multi-jurisdictional cartel litigation, including at trial and on appeal, as part of White & Case’s Band 1 (Chambers USA) cartel practice. He has been a key part of White & Case trial teams in some of the largest antitrust cases of the past decade, resulting in a string of successes that earned White & Case recognition by Law360 as Competition Group of the Year for an unprecedented six years in a row. In addition to representing companies in numerous industries during litigation (pharmaceuticals, healthcare, manufacturing, electronics), he has also advised companies on obtaining antitrust clearance from domestic and foreign regulatory authorities for mergers and acquisitions. Mike’s extensive experience representing companies in multi-jurisdictional, bet-the-company investigations and trials allows him to approach matters differently, with a focus from day one on reducing potential liability and keeping costs down while laying the groundwork to achieve victories at each stage of a litigation. This approach has resulted in success both earlier in the lifecycle of a case, such as through novel victories at class certification (Lithium Ion Batteries) and at summary judgment (the Seventh Circuit’s Motorola Mobility v. AU Optronics decision), as well as at trial (TFT-LCD).
