Quinn Emanuel has one of the world’s leading antitrust practices, with unique experience, capabilities, and resources to successfully represent life sciences clients in antitrust and competition disputes in the U.S. and abroad. We regularly bring and defend competitor suits and class actions, and our extensive experience on both sides of the “v” for pharmaceutical clients provides us deep understanding of how best to frame and organize—and win—complex antitrust lawsuits. We have won numerous dismissals by motion, and we have negotiated excellent settlements for our clients, including several settlements not requiring any monetary payment. But we are also a firm with the genuine ability and track record to take antitrust cases to trial, which provides an edge in litigation and any settlement talks, because the other side understands that we are ready and willing to successfully pursue our client’s case as far as it needs to go.
Quinn Emanuel’s antitrust practice is not comprised of general litigators who know a bit about competition law or antitrust transactional lawyers who have done a bit of litigation. Our antitrust lawyers are accomplished courtroom advocates with a deep understanding of competition law, and each year are recognized by such publications as Chambers, Benchmark Litigation, and Best Lawyers as among the world’s finest. In 2015, Law360 recognized our antitrust practice as one of the top five in the U.S. The Recorder selected Quinn Emanuel as one of the “Leading Antitrust Litigation Departments of the Year 2015.”
Our antitrust lawyers regularly work with other lawyers at the firm specializing in numerous legal areas relevant to our life sciences clients, including intellectual property, government investigations, and products liability. We have a Crisis Law Strategy group that provides strategic guidance for critical public relations issues in high-profile litigation. We therefore bring a comprehensive approach to competition issues that provides our life sciences clients a “one stop shop” for all their competition and antitrust needs.
Quinn Emanuel is also at the forefront of antitrust and competition matters throughout the world. Our worldwide resources – from the United States to Europe, the Asia-Pacific and Australia – enable us to execute comprehensive global strategies, taking account of the differences of national laws, efficiently because we do so as a single law firm.
