Civil litigation/class actions

Within: Civil litigation/class actions

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.

Merger control

Within: Merger control

The Washington DC-based team at White & Case LLP has top-notch capabilities in defending clients from a wide variety of industries against FTC/DOJ investigations into proposed and completed M&A and joint venture deals. Global antitrust chair Mark Gidley, a former acting assistant attorney general at the DOJ’s Antitrust Division, worked with George Paul, Rebecca Farrington and others to represent Anthem in litigation brought by the DOJ challenging the client’s proposed $54bn acquisition of Cigna. In 2016, the firm successfully assisted Zimmer Biomet with the merger clearance aspects of its $1bn acquisition of LDR Holding. Noah Brumfield, who practices in Silicon Valley, has a particular focus on technology sector mergers. Also recommended is recently promoted partner John Donaldson.
