For more than 40 years, David Tulchin has handled complex, high-stakes commercial litigation matters in state and federal courts across the United States and before national and international arbitration panels.
He is well known for his courtroom successes and has tried more than 30 business cases to verdict. Mr. Tulchin has also argued dozens of appeals, both in state and federal courts. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and has been named “Litigator of the Week” by The Am Law Litigation Daily twice in the last few years.
His practice encompasses all areas and intersections of the law, with a particular emphasis on complex antitrust, contract, patent, trademark and securities matters.
For more than 10 years, Mr. Tulchin was Microsoft’s lead national counsel in defense of dozens of private antitrust actions brought both by consumers and competitors. During this period, Mr. Tulchin won dismissals with prejudice for Microsoft in 20 of the major component actions, prevailed in seven appeals to U.S. Courts of Appeal and argued and won appeals for the company before the Supreme Courts of five states. He also tried an important antitrust case for Microsoft in an action brought by Novell in which Novell sought about $4 billion in damages, but got nothing. This is one of many major trial victories Mr. Tulchin has obtained for clients over the years.
Mr. Tulchin’s last three trials (described below) resulted in total victories for his clients, as did almost all of the many other cases he has tried over the years.
Mr. Tulchin consistently is recognized for his success as a commercial litigator by numerous industry publications, including The Legal 500, Benchmark Litigation and The Best Lawyers in America.
