- Served as counsel for a global pharmaceutical company in a lawsuit alleging that a group of pharmaceutical manufacturers conspired to overstate the average wholesale price (“AWP”) for prescription drugs covered by the Medicare program. Plaintiffs advanced claims under §§ 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act and the RICO Act. Through our advocacy, we convinced plaintiffs to drop their claims against our client in their consolidated amended complaint, thereby concluding involvement in the matter without any liability.
