Rosanna McCalips has 10 years of experience in defending pharmaceutical companies against antitrust lawsuits alleging a variety of exclusionary conduct. These proceedings have included sham citizen petition filings with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), sham Hatch-Waxman Act patent infringement litigation, fraud on the United States Patent and Trademark Office, abuse of FDA Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Systems programs, and product hopping. She was a member of the defense team in one of the few pharmaceutical antitrust cases to go to trial, helping to obtain a full defense jury verdict for the client against a claim of monopolization based on the filing of an allegedly sham citizen petition with the FDA.

In addition to monopolization cases, Rosanna has experience in defending companies against allegations of price-fixing conspiracies. Her other litigation experience includes cases involving claims against federal agencies under the Freedom of Information Act and the Administrative Procedure Act, claims arising from credit card security breaches, claims of professional negligence regarding Pap smear testing, and False Claims Act violations.

Rosanna is active in pro bono activities. She has represented tenants in obtaining compensation from their landlords for violations of the housing code as part of the firm’s initiative to assist in the preservation of affordable housing in the District of Columbia. She also provides pro bono representation in guardianship and custody cases in the Domestic Relations Branch of the DC Superior Court.
