Mark Gidley spearheads the antitrust litigation practice at White & Case LLP and recently teamed up with Boston's Michael Kendall to successfully obtain a full exoneration of Richard Usher, the lead defendant in the DOJ's criminal charges related to its investigation of the foreign exchange benchmark market. Noah Brumfield, who sits in Palo Alto, 'provides actionable advice that is very timely and efficient' and 'understands clients' businesses in a way that is rarely seen with outside counsel'. In the pharmaceutical space, Gidley, Peter Carney and New York-based Jack Pace and Michael Gallagher - among others - secured a reversal of class certification on behalf of Allergan. Also key is Christopher Curran, who leads the advice to longstanding client Toshiba; he recently defeated class certification in litigation brought by direct and indirect purchasers on the grounds of alleged price fixing in the lithium ion batteries market. Other key names include New York-based Robert Milne and John Chung, and Washington DC's Eric Grannon.

The 'very service-focused and responsive' team at White & Case LLP distinguishes itself through 'extraordinary client service' and its 'ability to take very complex matters and quickly provide guidance and tools'. George Paul's 'depth of experience, ability to make the complex simple and business-oriented and succinct approach' make him 'an in-house lawyer's dream'. Anthem recently appointed the group to oversee a number of high-value acquisitions in the health insurance space, as well as high-profile litigation arising from its proposed acquisition of Cigna. Noah Brumfield is leading advice to Delta Electronics regarding a $2.14bn tender offer for Delta Thailand and the associated notification filing before the Chinese authorities. Clients recommend the 'extremely pragmatic' Rebecca Farrington, who 'provides good market context and communications in a way that clients can easily navigate'. Also notable are Eric Grannon, Anna Kertesz, who was recently made partner, and department head Mark Gidley. All attorneys mentioned are based in Washington DC.
