Qui Tam & Whistleblower
- In re Capacitors Price-Fixing Antitrust Litigation: Sole Lead Counsel in a class action alleging that global capacitor manufacturers conspired to fix prices, forcing direct purchasers to pay more. Capacitors are devices placed in electric circuits that temporarily store electrical charge, and nearly every electronic device manufactured today contains them. The firm sought damages relief for a direct purchasors plaintiff class for the unlawful overcharge on capacitors resulting from the defendants’ alleged collusion. A 2020 trial was halted due to the pandemic. A new trial was held in late 2021: $165 in settlements were reached with the case's remaining defendants before a verdict was rendered. Total case settlements to date are $604.55 million, significantly exceeding the case’s calculated single damages ($427 million): an antitrust law rarity.
- In re Cipro Cases I and II: Co-Lead Counsel successfully representing a class of California consumers and insurers who brought antitrust claims against Bayer Corporation, Barr Laboratories, and other generic drug manufacturers, alleging that the companies paid drug manufacturers to delay the release of a Cipro alternative. In 2015, The California Supreme Court ruled in Plaintiffs’ favor: a ground-breaking holding that these type of 'pay-for-delay' arrangements were subject to antitrust scrutiny under California law and adopting a 'structured' rule of reason that curtailed available defenses. The case settled in 2017 for $399 million: a record for this type of case.
- In re High-Tech Employees Antitrust Litigation: Served as Co-Lead Class Counsel for a class of over 60,000 employees of leading technology companies such as Google and Apple against their employers for their alleged agreements to restrict recruiting to suppress wages. Three defendants agreed to settlements totaling $20 million. Following the Court’s denial of their motions for summary judgment, the remaining defendants agreed to a $415 million settlement.
- In re Titanium Dioxide Antitrust Litigation: Served as Co-Lead Counsel to a class of direct purchasers of titanium dioxide who alleged that several primary suppliers engaged in an unlawful conspiracy to raise, maintain, or stabilize prices for titanium dioxide in the United States. The case produced a $163.5 million settlement.
