Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP has seen its fair share of cases in sectors that have been active on the antitrust litigation front.

In pharmaceuticals, Joseph Simons and Aidan Synnott are representing Pfizer in the settlement of a class action alleging monopolistic practices concerning its anti-seizure drug Neurontin. In sports, Simons and Daniel Toal are defending Major League Baseball (MLB) in allegations, brought by a class of purchasers of television packages, that MLB is violating Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act by conspiring to prohibit teams from broadcasting their individual games nationwide.
