Steve Bomse, a partner in Orrick's San Francisco office, is a member of the Litigation Group specializing in antitrust litigation. He is widely regarded as one of the nation's leading antitrust lawyers, having tried cases throughout the United States involving multibillion dollar claims while also maintaining a significant appellate practice, including, most recently his successful representation of Weyerhaeuser Company in a major Section 2 case before the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Bomse also represents clients from around the world in other types of complex commercial litigation, both at the trial and the appellate level.
Among the many other companies for whom Mr. Bomse has handled significant antitrust matters are: 3M, Coca-Cola, Pacific Gas & Electric, Sara Lee Corporation, Levi Strauss & Co., American Home Foods, UBS AG and Miller Brewing.
While the primary focus of Mr. Bomse's practice has been, and remains antitrust, he also has had an active trial and appellate practice outside the competition area. In addition to several cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, Mr. Bomse has argued appeals in seven separate federal circuits and has tried cases in a number of different federal districts.
Before joining Orrick, Mr. Bomse was a shareholder at Heller Ehrman LLP where he served for many years as a member of its Management and Policy Committee, and headed up both the Litigation Department and the firm's Global Competition Practice.
In 1988, Mr. Bomse was on leave as a visiting professor at Stanford Law School.
