Berger Montague Ranked in The Legal 500’s 2015 Guide
PHILADELPHIA, PA, June 3, 2015 — Berger Montague is proud to announce that the firm has been ranked as a Top-Tier Firm for Antitrust: Civil Litigation and Class Actions in the United States by The Legal 500. Since its founding in 1970, Berger Montague has litigated many of the most significant civil antitrust cases alleging price fixing and monopoly abuse. Berger Montague has also played a principal role in obtaining over one billion dollars in settlements from drug companies alleged to have impeded the entry of generics and artificially inflated drug prices.
From The Legal 500 Directory:
Philadelphia-based plaintiff firm Berger Montague focuses on cartel matters, price-fixing and monopolization. The 60-strong antitrust group, co-chaired by highly regarded H. Laddie Montague, Jr. and Merrill Davidoff, has a high level of expertise in the pharmaceutical sector and in litigation relating to payment cards. The team acted as lead or co-lead counsel in a number of complex antitrust cases currently pending, for example for the direct purchaser classes in two major nationwide antitrust class actions, In re PreFilled Propane Tank Antitrust Litigation and In re Commodity Exchange Inc, Gold Futures And Options Trading Litigation. In another high-profile antitrust class action, the firm acted for thousands of mixed martial artists who alleged that the UFC engaged in enhancing its monopoly and thereby prevented class members from receiving fair payment for their services. The firm continues to be involved in the In re Payment Card and Merchant Discount Litigation and Meijer Inc v Abbott Laboratories, and represented a class of thousands of independently owned truck stops against defendant Comdata Network Inc in a case of alleged market monopolization. Eric Cramer, who acted as lead attorney in this matter, is also recommended.
In addition to the firm’s Top-Tier ranking, three Berger Montague attorneys were recommended in the United States for Antitrust.
