big-time operator

A person, company, or organization that is very successful, prominent, and influential in some area of business. Once a small local farm run by Jefferies and his brothers, their berry business is now a big-time operator responsible for supplying the entire Pacific Northwest. These big-time operators have the funds to fight these civil lawsuits, but smaller companies like ours have little choice but to try and settle for an amount we can afford.
