Fatima Brizuela

Fatima’s practice includes antitrust, unfair competition, and consumer protection litigation with a focus on complex class action matters involving price-fixing, illegal tying, and unlawful monopolization. Fatima has represented classes of individuals and businesses harmed by anticompetitive conduct from initial pre-suit evaluation of claims all the way through to class certification and final approval of final settlements. Fatima’s recent work includes representation of a class of participants who traded futures and options in the foreign exchange market, alleging that defendant banks colluded to manipulate foreign exchange rates, in In re Foreign Exchange Benchmark Rates Antitrust Litigation (S.D.N.Y.);   In re Cathode Ray Tube Antitrust Litigation (N.D. Cal.) (representing an end-user class of businesses and consumers alleging that manufacturers of cathode ray tubes conspired to fix, raise, maintain, and/or stabilize prices, thereby harming end-users who paid artificially inflated prices for CRT products); In re Disposable Contact Lens Antitrust Litigation (M.D. Fla.) (representing a class of consumers alleging that manufacturers of disposable contact lenses engaged in a “hub and spoke” conspiracy to coordinate prices through what defendants characterized as “unilateral pricing policies”).
