Ropes & Gray LLP acts for plaintiffs and defendants in litigation covering the full spectrum of anticompetitive practices, such as tying, price-fixing, monopolization and group boycotts, among others. Washington DC-based practice head Mark Popofsky and Boston’s Jane Willis are defending Hitachi-LG Data Services in various class actions brought by direct and indirect purchasers concerning an optical disk drive price-fixing scheme. The firm has particular strength in healthcare-related antitrust work; notable highlights included acting for Questcor Pharmaceuticals (now part of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals) in Retrophin’s challenge of the client’s acquisition of the rights to Novartis’ Synacthen drug.
