Daily Journal has named Penny Preovolos to its 2020 list of Top Antitrust Lawyers, which honors leading antitrust practitioners in plaintiff, defense, and government work.
Penny has served as lead counsel in major consumer class actions and antitrust cases for more than 35 years, successfully representing high-profile defendants in antitrust, consumer fraud, and product defect matters. Previously serving as co-chair of the firm’s Antitrust practice for 14 years, her clients span a range of industries, including consumer electronics, technology, retail, publishing, food and beverage, cosmetics, and household products.
Penny recently obtained dismissal with prejudice of a competitor case against her client. The plaintiff alleged monopolization, conspiracy, and exclusive dealing. The trial court’s ruling for her client was affirmed by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. She also recently represented a labeling technology company in a federal antitrust case involving claims under the California Cartwright Act and the state’s Unfair Competition Law, in addition to federal attempted monopolization and boycott claims.
Speaking to her continued success, Penny was named the 2019 Antitrust Lawyer of the Year by the Antitrust, UCL, and Privacy Section of the California Lawyers Association. She has served as chair of the Antitrust and Trade Regulation Section of the State Bar of California and as a member of the Ninth Circuit Advisory Committee on Local Rules and Operations. She is an editor of and frequent contributor to Morrison & Foerster’s Class Dismissed blog, as well as a frequent speaker about class action and antitrust issues.
