Assouline & Berlowe was started in 2003 by attorneys Eric Assouline and Peter Berlowe. Besides both serving as editors on the University of Miami (UM) Law Review together, prior to starting the Firm, Mr. Assouline and Mr. Berlowe, worked together, and trained as litigators, in the Miami office of the prestigious international law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP.
In addition to various general litigation matters they handled at Weil Gotshal, Mr. Assouline spent much of his time as the lead litigation attorney representing former U.S. Attorney Otto Obermaier, as the court appointed receiver for an international Ponzi scheme. Even though the case was filed by the Securities & Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission in the Southern District of New York, the headquarters for the fraudulent enterprise was in Naples, Florida and most of the litigation took place in South Florida. Similarly, Mr. Berlowe, spent much of his time at Weil Gotshal attending to the complexities involved in two major American Airlines (AA) antitrust matters. The first, was a “bet the company” action filed by the United States Justice Department (DOJ) against AA, alleging that it had engaged in predatory antitrust activities with the low cost airlines competing in various different markets. After years of litigation, AA eventually prevailed on a hotly contested appeal at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and was cleared of any wrongdoing. Mr. Berlowe was also extensively involved in the acquisition of the long standing iconic TWA airline by AA, which was subject of DOJ scrutiny.
