Jonathan W. Cuneo inducted into The American Antitrust Institute’s Private Antitrust Enforcement Hall of Fame.

At the 2022 AAI Awards ceremony in Washington, DC, Jonathan W. Cuneo, founding partner of Cuneo Gilbert Laduca LLC, was inducted into the AAI Hall of Fame. 

AAI President Diana Moss noted, in announcing the award, that “Jon Cuneo is an iconic member of the antitrust community and has been at the vanguard of the movement for stronger enforcement of the antitrust laws for decades”.

This prestigious award celebrates the achievements of Mr Cuneo in nearly four decades of work on behalf of “plaintiffs in state and federal trial and appeals courts around the country in a variety of cases, including in complex antitrust, civil and human rights, consumer protection, corporate governance, and securities class actions. He also has led numerous legislative efforts before Congress”.

Cuneo joins AAI Private Antitrust Enforcement Hall of Fame inductees Joseph Goldberg, Roberta D. Liebenberg, H. Laddie Montague Jr., Ellen Meriwether, and Michael Freed.

In his speech, Cuneo recognized an “unrelenting civility” common among the prior winners of the award, and identified “firm and unrelenting persistence, consistency and grit” as the “winning pitches in this league”, where “the only victory is persuasion”. Cuneo also acknowledged the efforts of the entire staff of CGL, “without whom I would be nothing, and don’t I know it”. Video of full acceptance speech below – editing by Max Tiefer.
