With first-rate expertise in the healthcare and financial sectors, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP frequently handles some of the most hotly contested litigation in the country. The firm is heavily involved in opioid crisis work: team co-head Maura Monaghan represents certain former directors and shareholders of Purdue Pharma in federal multi-district litigation with projected damages in excess of $1bn. In another highlight, private equity specialist Shannon Rose Selden defended Clayton, Dubilier & Rice in a securities class action lawsuit claiming $4.4bn in damages at the US District Court for the Middle District of Tennesse. Elsewhere, team co-head Mark Goodman represented Tribune Media Company in a number of matters in Delaware and Illinois federal courts in connection with its failed merger with Sinclair Broadcasting Group. Key attorneys with expertise in insurance litigation include chair of the firm’s insurance group Maeve O’Connor and Susan Reagan Gittes. Both provide excellent continuity in the insurance space following the retirement of securities and insurance expert Edwin Schallert in December 2018. Also of note is counsel Elliot Greenfield, whose practice includes defending securities class actions.
