Jeannine M. Kenney

Jeannine M. Kenney is a partner in Hausfeld’s Philadelphia office, licensed in both Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia.

Jeannine’s practice focuses primarily on private enforcement of federal and state antitrust laws. She was named a Rising Star in antitrust litigation by Super Lawyers (2015-2019), an honor awarded to fewer than five percent of practitioners in the state.

Representative antitrust matters include:

  • In re Foreign Exchange Benchmark Rates Antitrust Litig., 13-cv-7789 (S.D.N.Y.), alleging a conspiracy among leading financial institutions to manipulate the foreign exchange market, in which Hausfeld serves as co-lead interim counsel and has obtained more than $2.1 billion in settlements to date.
  • In re Generic Digoxin and Doxycycline Antitrust Litigation, No. 16-md-2724 (E.D. Pa.) representing a class of end-payers alleging generic drug manufacturers and marketers conspired to unlawful inflate the price of critical medications.
  • In re Domestic Airline Travel Antitrust Litig., No. 15-mc-1404 (D.D.C.) alleging major airlines conspired to reduce capacity to artificially inflate the price of domestic air travel, in which Hausfeld serves as interim co-lead counsel.
  • In re Blue Cross Blue Shield Antitrust Litig., No. 13-mdl-2496 (N.D. Ala.), representing subscribers alleging dozens of Blue Cross Blue Shield entities entered into an unlawful agreement not to compete, in which Hausfeld serves as co-lead counsel and discovery chair; Jeannine works primarily on e-discovery in the matter.
  • In re Processed Egg Products Antitrust Litig., No. 08-md-2002 (E.D. Pa.), representing egg purchasers alleging egg producers and distributors entered into an unlawful agreement to restrict egg supplies, in which Hauseld serves as co-lead counsel and has obtained nearly $60 million in settlements to date, secured class certification of a shell egg class, and obtained summary judgment that eliminated a primary affirmative defense.
  • In re Fresh and Process Potatoes Antitrust Litig., No. 10-MD-2186 (D. Idaho), which alleged more than 24 potato growers, distributors, and processor defendants entered into an unlawful agreement to restrict potato supplies to inflate the price. Hausfeld chaired the 10-member Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee and secured a ground-breaking ruling on a novel question of law undermining a key defense in the case, ultimately obtaining a global settlement of nearly $20 million and significant injunctive relief. Jeannine managed the 20-plus defendant case from discovery through resolution, including all e-discovery matters.
