Led by global antitrust head Mark Gidley, White & Case LLP’s group, which has ‘great business acumen and industry knowledge’, has an enviable track record in class actions, individual actions (covering the gamut of claims) and merger litigation. The team has a particularly outstanding reputation in pharmaceutical sector cases; among a string of recent successes in this arena, in a precedent-setting case, a Washington DC-based team including Gidley, Peter Carney, Eileen Cole, Noah Brumfield (Silicon Valley and Washington DC) and others successfully defended Warner Chilcott at the Third Circuit against product-hopping claims connected with acne medication Doryx. The firm also represented Allergan in a putative class action concerning its Botox product and a licensing agreement with Korea-based Medytox, the result of which would have allegedly delayed entry into the US of a competing product to Botox (manufactured by Medytox). Elsewhere, Christopher Curran and New York-based Martin Toto and John Chung are defending Toshiba against a billion-dollar lawsuit brought by the Illinois Attorney General against manufacturers of LCD panels. Jack Pace and Robert Milne (both New York), Eric Grannon (Washington DC) and recently promoted partner Heather Burke (Silicon Valley) are also recommended.
