Enson has extensive experience in responding to U.S. Department of Justice antitrust investigations, and handling follow-on civil class action and opt-out litigation. He has led the defense of criminal grand jury investigations alleging collusion among competitors and represents targets of investigations, as well as witnesses.
Enson joins from Jones Day, where he was partner.
"Eric is a highly respected litigator who has in-depth trial experience and can lead a client through every stage of defending both criminal and civil litigation. We are proud to welcome Eric to our team because of the deep experience he offers clients and the remarkable mentorship he will bring to our up-and-coming litigators on the West Coast," said Jason Murray , co-chair of the firm's Antitrust and Competition Group.

"Over the years, I have worked against Crowell as opposing counsel in litigation, and I've worked with Crowell as co-counsel on large cases, as well. The team has always impressed me. They consistently demonstrate remarkable skill and genuine collegiality, which I believe is a winning combination that leads to excellent client service," said Enson.
