Whether successfully leading clients through complex multidistrict litigation cases or negotiating criminal fine reductions in the hundreds of millions of dollars, Rachel Adcox is a standout amongst antitrust practitioners. In both 2021 and 2019, Rachel’s skills earned her nominations for GCR’s Litigator of the Year. In 2018, her work as lead counsel for multiple companies in the auto parts MDL earned her a nomination for Litigation of the Year – Cartel Defence.
The scope and significance of Rachel’s work is the best illustration of the trust that major corporations place in her skill and judgment. Beginning in 2018, she was tapped by Tyson Foods to lead its defense of multiple treble-damage class action litigations, alleging industry-wide conspiracies to raise prices of broiler chickens, pork, and turkey, and to depress grower pay. In 2019, Rachel achieved success in the auto parts MDL by winning full dismissal of two separate cases, first against the client’s non-US parent company, and then against its US subsidiary. She is also currently lead counsel for RelayHealth, a subsidiary of McKesson Corporation, in a treble-damages class action alleging a conspiracy to monopolize electronic prescribing, and leads Alvogen’s defense of the sprawling generic pharmaceuticals MDL.
