Jake has particular insight into challenges facing companies that adopt a “razors and razor blades” business model, which can result in disputes with distributors or independent service organizations that offer competing aftermarket goods and services. He advises clients on issues relating to aftermarkets, including forward-thinking and proactive strategies for securing aftermarket revenues, minimizing antitrust risk and avoiding litigation. If litigation is unavoidable, he has vast experience trying cases and otherwise defending his clients’ business interests.
In addition, Jake is a seasoned trial lawyer who serves clients in complex litigation in many areas. He has worked on cases involving regulatory challenges under the Administrative Procedure Act, qui tam whistleblower claims, fraudulent transfer and alter ego claims, and postmerger disputes. As with his antitrust practice, he works hard to distill and simplify complex legal issues for clients and courts.
In his free time, Jake can be found cheering on his children from the sidelines of basketball courts and soccer fields, reading crime fiction, enjoying a movie, or venturing outdoors in search of rare birds and fresh air.
