ZDNet takes a look into the upcoming AMD/Intel legal fight happening all around the globe:

While AMD is leaning on Charles Diamond, a lawyer at O'Melveny & Myers and AMD's lead outside counsel, Intel has named Bob Cooper with Gibson Dunn & Crutcher and antitrust lawyer Joseph Kattan to argue its case. Both men were hired to represent Intel during the FTC's antirust probe of the company between 1998 and 2000.

Intel also said it is using the services of Washington, D.C., law firm Howrey Simon to help with the antitrust defence and attorneys with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom to assist Intel KK in Japan.

"Talk about a declaration of all-out war," said Tom Horton, partner, Thelen Reid & Priest, and a former Department of Justice attorney who also worked at the Federal Trade Commission from 1984 to 1987. "I think the companies have hired the best and the brightest to argue their cases. These people know their stuff."
So far, AMD's officially filed cases in the USA and in Japan, and rumors are they'll be doing so under the EU's antitrust laws as well.
