Venable attorneys J. Douglas Baldridge, Danielle R. Foley, Lisa Jose Fales, and Vince E. Verrocchio were named "Legal Lions" by Law360 on August 31, 2017, for a litigation victory that was a "show of domination" by the team, proclaimed Law360.
The recognition was for winning the denial of class certification in a so-called "reverse payment" antitrust proposed class action against Venable client Ranbaxy.
A Pennsylvania federal judge denied class certification to a group of direct purchasers who accused Venable's client Ranbaxy of allegedly entering into illegal agreements with the maker of the branded prescription narcolepsy medication Provigil, to delay market entry of Ranbaxy's generic version.
This is the second time in a month that Venable attorneys have been included in Law360's weekly roundup of standouts.
On August 17, the trial team of J. Douglas Baldridge, Danielle R. Foley, and Katie M. Wright were included for securing a win for Taylor Swift in her assault countersuit against a radio DJ who’d accused the pop star of getting him fired.
