Peter CarneyWhite & Case LLP

The team at White & Case LLP represents major domestic and multinational clients in high-stakes cartel proceedings and litigation, with a successful record in disposing civil and criminal cartel claims in court or on appeal, as well as handling investigations by the FTC, DOJ and international competition authorities. The firm is involved in the full range of US and global cartel cases in key areas such as auto parts, financial services and LCDs, to name a few, and is able to draw upon a broad range of sector and multijurisdictional expertise, regularly representing clients that fall outside of US jurisdiction. An extensive team is headed by Mark Gidley, a hugely experienced practitioner who has seen great success in cartel trials both in the US and internationally, who is currently representing Itron in cartel proceedings brought against numerous water meter manufacturers initiated by the Italian Competition Authority, among other major cases. Peter Carney specializes in healthcare and pharma work, handling a wide range of global antitrust investigations and civil litigation on behalf of clients such as Gilead and AbbVie, while Christopher Curran is noted for his work on precedent-setting cartel cases, including the first-ever litigation of an amnesty agreement. New York’s Robert Milne is heavily active in the pharma and chemicals space, including representation of Pfizer and Sun Chemical in noted antitrust cases, while Frank Hogue is regularly involved in enforcement proceedings, and senior associate Adam Acosta continues to establish himself as a key player in complex cartel litigation. Attorneys are in Washington DC unless otherwise stated.
