Crew spent five decades practicing antitrust law on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants and was tapped for a number of high-profile cases: In the 1990s, the antitrust division of the Department of Justice retained him for cases against NASDAQ and General Electric, and his 2003 coordinated class action win against Microsoft netted $1.1 billion in vouchers for Californians to buy any manufacturer's products — not to mention $33 million in fees for his firm.
