US: Sidley Austin partner Tim Cowen joins Preiskel & Co with Google case

 |  February 26, 2015

Sidley Austin partner Tim Cowen has joined technology, media and telecoms boutique Preiskel & Co as an equity partner.

Cowen has brought with him to the firm a multi-million pound antitrust litigation against Google brought by mapping site StreetMap.

StreetMap is bringing damages claims against Google alleging abuse of dominance in the way in which Google operates its search engine. The case is conjoined with a similar claim brought by price comparison site Foundem and both allege that Google favours its own products over those third parties.

Cowen focused on EU and UK competition law and EU regulatory law at Sidley. He was previously general counsel and head of competition law at BT.
