As an Associate in the Antitrust Department, Ms. Chaudhury works primarily on pharmaceutical antitrust cases. Her work has contributed to successful challenges of anticompetitive practices by pharmaceutical manufacturers, including a recent $120 million settlement reached on behalf of the direct purchaser class three weeks before trial was scheduled to start in In re Loestrin 24 Fe Antitrust Litigation, related to claims that Allergan wrongfully delayed entry of lower-cost generic versions of Loestrin 24 Fe, a birth control pill.

AstraZeneca Pharm. (Seroquel XR).
