Ropes & Gray LLP differentiates itself by its ability to handle both defendant and plaintiff work and acts for companies such as Google, Cablevision and Polar Air Cargo. The firm’s broad-ranging expertise in class actions complements its antitrust practice, as demonstrated by the fact that the team, which is led by Washington DC-based Mark Popofsky, is involved in high-profile cases such as Re Optical Disk Drive Products Antitrust Litigation, where Popofsky and Boston-based Jane Willis are defending Hitachi-LG Data Services. Healthcare is a real sector strength and a cross-office team of Washington DC and San Francisco lawyers represented Questcor Pharmaceuticals (now part of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals) in a challenge brought by Retrophin to Questcor’s acquisition of the rights to Novartis’ Synacthen drug. Jerome Katz is a key contact in New York.
