Esther specializes in class actions and other complex civil litigation, with a focus on antitrust.
Representative matters include:
- Interior Molded Doors Litigation: The Firm is Interim Co-Lead Counsel for a proposed Indirect Purchaser Plaintiffs Class of individuals and companies who purchased interior molded doors from Defendants JELD-WEN, Inc. and Masonite Corporation. Plaintiffs allege that as a result of Defendants’ alleged anticompetitive conduct, Plaintiffs and other potential Class members paid more for doors than they would have in a competitive environment; and
- In re EpiPen Marketing, Sales Practices, and Antitrust Litigation: The Firm is on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee leading a class action alleging that Pfizer and Mylan—manufacturer and distributor of the epinephrine autoinjector EpiPen, respectively—have unlawfully created and abused a monopoly for the life-saving product. Plaintiffs seek recovery of damages and overpayments from at least 2009 through the present, as well as injunctive relief under the federal antitrust laws and various state consumer protection and antitrust laws.
