Steven Bizar Honored as Best of the Bar by the Philadelphia Business Journal

September 27, 2018

Dechert LLP partner Steven Bizar has been named an honoree by the Philadelphia Business Journal in its Best of the Bar Awards 2018 in the Business Litigation category. The award showcases Philadelphia’s top lawyers based on their achievements, the size of their results and the overall impact of their work.

Mr. Bizar, co-leader of Dechert’s antitrust/competition practice, has earned a reputation as a fierce and strategic litigator after nearly three decades of experience. He regularly represents multinational and domestic companies, partnerships and individuals, advising on a diverse range of services including antitrust and trade regulation, contract and business tort, government investigation, insurance and reinsurance, and securities and corporate governance matters.

He recently led the Dechert trial team that won a decisive defense verdict on behalf of egg producer R.W. Sauder in a US$1 billion federal class action jury trial. Antitrust class action disputes rarely go to trial at all, let alone reach a verdict. Mr. Bizar’s unwavering perseverance during this five-week trial also earned him recognition by National Law Journal as a 2018 Winning Litigator.

Best of the Bar honorees will be recognized on October 25 at Philadelphia’s SugarHouse Casino, and will also be featured in a special edition of the Philadelphia Business Journal.
