NEW YORK, January 18, 2022: Morgan Lewis has been recognized by Law360 in its 2021 Practice Groups of the Year awards for Competition/Antitrust and Healthcare. Law360’s Practice Groups of the Year series honors the lawyers and firms behind landmark litigation and major deals that shaped the legal industry in the last year.
It is the fifth consecutive year that the firm’s renowned antitrust and competition practice has earned a spot for its continued victories for a range of clients in the United States and globally. Additionally, the practice is a destination transactional antitrust practice and served as US antitrust counsel in the combination of Pfizer’s Upjohn business and Mylan NV to form Viatris.
Morgan Lewis’s healthcare practice, which has also been ranked as the #1 Largest US Healthcare Law Firm by Modern Healthcare, led a COVID-19 response investigation at a state veterans’ nursing home, which resulted in the immediate adoption of better oversight and accountability. It also secured a notable civil money penalty win in the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which will impact enforcement actions going forward across the healthcare industry.
Now in its 12th year, Law360’s Practice Groups of the Year series selects practices that have played an integral role in the year's biggest litigation victories or deals, based on size, complexity, and significance. Law360 will begin publishing profiles of the top practices across 40 practice areas later this week with the Competition/Antitrust and Healthcare profiles slated for February.
