PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY

Adam M.

Clients across many industries turn to Mr. Weg for his knowledge and counsel in complicated litigation such as:

  • Representing one of the largest private cotton farms in the United States in connection with antitrust allegations for violations under section 1 of the Sherman Act, including per se horizontal group boycott, by one of largest cotton spinners in Asia.  The case is currently pending before the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR).
