OVERVIEW

Experience

Gary focuses his practice on antitrust litigation. In his young career, he has already secured over $900 million to benefit the victims of anticompetitive practices. Gary has litigated cases at every level, from state trial court all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States, through which he has gained a wide range of experience briefing and arguing dispositive motions, taking and defending fact and expert witness depositions, and serving on trial teams, inclusive of first- and second-chair jury trial experience. He has challenged monopolistic practices and cartel activity in a wide range of industries - from the agricultural sector to the transportation and aviation sectors to the financial markets - with a particular emphasis on healthcare, where Gary has litigated cases concerning biologics (vaccines), pharmaceuticals, and medical product distribution markets.

Gary is also committed to serving the community through pro bono work. Most recently, he has been working with a team of Hausfeld lawyers to advise victims of clergy sexual abuse who have received settlement offers from the Philadelphia Archdiocese. For this and other pro bono work, Gary and Hausfeld’s Philadelphia office received the Philadelphia Bar Foundation’s 2019 Pro Bono Award.
