Doug Baldridge has been named one of National Law Journal's 2017 "Litigation Trailblazers," highlighting those "who have helped make a difference in the fight for justice." Previously, he was named as a "Trailblazer" for Antitrust, making him one of a select few to ever be named in two categories.

The profile highlighted Doug's recent representation of Taylor Swift in her complete victory against former radio host David Mueller; the win for Ranbaxy, where the court denied class certification to a group of direct purchasers who accused Ranbaxy of allegedly entering into illegal agreements with the maker of Provigil; and Headfirst v. Elwood, where a jury found that Robert Elwood and Brendan V. Sullivan III were in a partnership that built the Headfirst baseball camps business, despite the absence of a written agreement.

When asked about how he got his start as a litigator, Doug responded, "In the 1980s, everyone wanted to be a corporate lawyer. But I got an offer in litigation, and I was actually upset about it. The lawyer who made the offer said there was no other place that I fit in. That’s probably the best advice I've ever gotten."
