Like Kasowitz, Richard Pepperman II, 42, secured his reputation by making himself indispensible to an important firm client in a heap of trouble.Pepperman then used the credibility he had earned to expand his career beyond that client.
Now the deputy managing partner of Sullivan & Cromwell's litigation group, Pepperman was the first associate the firm assigned to Microsoft Corporation's antitrust case when it was just a small Justice investigation in 1993.As that case exploded over the next decade, turning into the largest government antitrust case in U.S. history and spawning dozens of private class actions, Pepperman's responsibilities grew along with it. 'At each point along the way, as nicely as I could, I lobbied for a larger role,' says Pepperman.
During the first phase of the consolidated antitrust trial in 1998, Pepperman was a junior member of S&C's Microsoft team, drafting motions and handling a few cross-examinations; by the second phase--a three-month trial in 2000 to determine whether the company owed damages to nine nonsettling states and the District of Columbia--Pepperman was one of the three S&C lawyers in court every day, a leader on the defense team that persuaded Washington, D.C., federal district court judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly that the states were not entitled to additional payments.
By 2004 Pepperman was lead counsel for Microsoft in a two-month antitrust trial in state court in Minnesota. (The case ended in a mid-trial settlement.)
Pepperman's development 'was like time-lapse photography,' says William Neukom, then the head of Microsoft's legal department and now chair of Preston Gates Ellis. 'For eight years, this [litigation] was the most important thing on my desk,' Neukom says, 'and Rick became an anchor.'Pepperman's development 'was like time-lapse photography,' says William Neukom, then the head of Microsoft's legal department and now chair of Preston Gates Ellis. 'For eight years, this [litigation] was the most important thing on my desk,' Neukom says, 'and Rick became an anchor.'
Then Pepperman made a bold career decision.After the Minnesota trial, he started branching beyond Microsoft. 'It had become a bit like Groundhog Day, ' says Pepperman. 'I wanted to have a higher profile, so I walked away from my comfort area and starting doing things I had never done before. ' Pepperman is currently representing Willis Group Holdings Limited, the world's third-largest insurance carrier, in regulatory investigations and civil suits in more than 20 states; and Morgan Stanley & Co.Inc. in shareholder litigation arising from the Time Warner/AOL merger.He also regularly represents Goldman Sachs in securities litigation. | Dallas-Fort Worth | Business: Technology, 5 April 2002 [cached]
While questioning an AOL witness testifying for nine states seeking antitrust penalties against Microsoft, Microsoft lawyer Richard Pepperman produced an internal AOL e-mail suggesting that AOL joined a high-profile Internet standards group only after it seemed Microsoft would join first.
The Liberty Alliance, created by Sun Microsystems Inc., was founded to develop a common way for Internet users to identify themselves online for electronic commerce.
AOL joined in December, just before the deadline for new founding members.Mr. Pepperman said AOL did so for a public relations boost, citing the e-mail that said joining after Microsoft "mitigates a major reason for our participation" and gives Microsoft "a significant win [regarding] positioning on interoperability for press and partners."

Microsoft attorney Rick Pepperman said such a customization of the desktop experience could take place today if original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) placed an icon on the desktop for such an experience to occur the second time the computer is turned on.
Pepperman countered that such a customization would be akin to giving away Microsoft's most valuable intellectual property.
