Katie is an associate in the firm’s Philadelphia office focusing on antitrust, civil and human rights, and environmental litigation. In recent years, Katie has been named a Lawyer on the Fast Track by The Legal Intelligencer, a Rising Star in Antitrust Litigation by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers, and an Energy & Environmental Trailblazer by the National Law Journal.

Katie’s active antitrust matters include In re Thalomid and Revlimid Antitrust Litigation, No. 14-6997 (D.N.J.), a class action alleging that the defendant’s extensive anticompetitive conduct excluded generic alternatives for Thalomid and Revlimid, two drugs used to treat rare but deadly conditions, from entering the market, causing end payors to incur millions of dollars in overcharges. Katie is also a member of the In re Foreign Exchange Benchmark Rates Antitrust Litigation, 13-7789 (S.D.N.Y.) team, alleging a conspiracy to fix the prices of foreign exchange instruments among some of the largest banks in the world, in which the firm has thus far secured more than $2.3 billion in settlements.

Pa.), pro bono climate change litigation on behalf of Philadelphia’s oldest environmental non-profit, Clean Air Council, and two Pennsylvania children.

The Dow Chemical Company et al., 17-6980 (E.D.N.Y.) and Suffolk County Water Authority v. The 3M Company et al., 17-6982 (E.D.N.Y.).
