Laurence Z. Shiekman is of counsel with Pepper Hamilton LLP. He is an experienced complex, commercial trial lawyer who has spent a substantial amount of time on antitrust, intellectual property, securities and general commercial matters. His antitrust work has included a number of patent-antitrust cases.

Mr. Shiekman has long been active in firm leadership. He chaired Pepper’s Finance Committee for 28 years, and was co-chair of the firm’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department for over three years. He also was a member of the firm’s Executive Committee for six years and chair of the firm’s Trial and Dispute Resolution Practice Group for more than five years.
