Our experience includes government and private litigation, trials and appeals, mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, and numerous precedent-setting wins for our clients. In the pharmaceutical sector, we have unparalleled experience. According to Global Competition Review in 2016, ‘No firm is more prolific or successful in handling major antitrust litigation targeting the pharmaceutical industry than White & Case’. A key feature of our practice is in handling matters of first impression relating to the cutting-edge, fast-moving area at the intersection between IP and antitrust in the pharmaceutical industry. Our work on behalf of pharmaceutical clients includes defence against challenges to ‘reverse payment’ patent settlement agreements, ‘product-hopping’, excessive pricing, claims of Walker Process fraud before the US Patent and Trademark Office, ‘sham’ IP enforcement and US Food and Drug Administration petitioning, and other allegations of improper conduct to delay or inhibit competition. In the EU, we have extensive experience litigating claims brought by antitrust authorities, both at EU and national level.
