Law360, New York (December 18, 2012, 1:32 PM ET) -- As co-lead counsel for a class of about 7 million merchants, Robins Kaplan Miller & Ciresi LLP's K. Craig Wildfang negotiated a proposed $7.25 billion settlement to resolve litigation over Visa Inc. and MasterCard Inc.'s alleged collusion on interchange fees, earning him a spot on Law360's list of Competition MVPs. 

The settlement — which is believed to be the largest private antitrust settlement in U.S. history — won preliminary approval from U.S. District Judge John Gleeson in November.
