About the Author

Lloyd Constantine is counsel of Constantine Cannon LLP, a commercial litigation firm in New York and Washington, D.C., with an internationally acclaimed antitrust practice. He was senior advisor to New York governor Eliot Spitzer from January 2007 until March 2008. His book Journal of the Plague Year chronicles that experience. Priceless: The Case That Brought Down the Visa/MasterCard Bank Cartel is his book about his role as lead counsel for the victorious plaintiffs in a long legal struggle that resulted in the largest antitrust settlement in American history. He writes a regular column called The Weekender, about government and public policy, and is a frequent contributor to newspapers and magazines across the country, and most recently, The New York Times, Business Week, and the Albany Times Union.
