Evan Chesler Profiled by The Litigation Daily
The Litigation Daily recently recognized Cravath Chairman Evan R. Chesler for his involvement, and victory, serving as counsel for American Express in its antitrust fight.
During his decades-long career at Cravath, including six years as presiding partner, Mr. Chesler has tried more than 50 cases across practice areas and handled over 70 appeals. However, until AmEx, he had never argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. Mr. Chesler represented AmEx from the beginning of the Justice Department’s investigation into credit card company “antisteering” rules and worked tirelessly to secure a win. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Ohio et al. v. American Express that antisteering provisions do not violate federal law.
Cravath has a mandatory retirement age of 65 and Mr. Chesler will turn 69 later this month but shows no signs of slowing down. “I certainly don’t have any present intention” of retiring, he said. “It’s the best way to go through life, doing something you love.”
