A Six-Month Update of China’s Fair Competition Review System
Richard S. Goldstein, a Partner in Orrick’s Litigation Division, is based in the Firm's New York office.
"Highly regarded" by clients and peers alike, according to Legal 500, Rick represents some of the world’s leading companies in federal and state antitrust litigation and investigations, complex commercial litigation, and securities litigation.
Having spent part of his career in-house at Merck & Co., Inc., and as deputy general counsel of DoubleClick Inc., Rick has deep experience as a litigator from the perspective of both inside and outside counsel.
Rick has worked on several of the most prominent antitrust cases in recent years, including representation of a major software company in its successful defense against claims that it misused its IP to gain an illegal monopoly, representation of one of the largest vitamin manufacturers in China in multi-district class action concerning an alleged vitamin C industry cartel (the first antitrust case ever brought against Chinese defendants in a U.S. court), and representation of a global pharmaceutical company in nationwide litigation challenging industry pricing practices.
Rick’s commercial and securities litigation experience includes regular representation of a well-known investment bank in deal-related litigation; representation of a hedge fund in an international arbitration that resulted in a $50 million award for his client; securing dismissal of all claims against a Big Four auditor in securities litigation; defending board members of a land-holding corporation against shareholder claims of breach of fiduciary duty; and defending trustees of a coal company trust in a dispute concerning 27,000 acres of coal rights.
The New York State Bar Association designated Rick a 2014 Empire State Counsel for his pro bono representation of a domestic violence victim in immigration proceedings.
