Andrew Kassof and Barry Fields’ wins for Abbott were mentioned in The Am Law Litigation Daily’s “Daily Dicta” newsletter. The attorneys were runners up for the publication’s Litigators of the Week feature.
“…We had some great nominations. Kirkland & Ellis partners Andrew Kassof and Barry Fields scored a big win for St. Jude Medical LLC and Abbott Laboratories in Minnesota federal court, beating back a would-be class action seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages. (See my story here). And the next day, Kassof did it again, this time getting a whistleblower suit in California state court against Abbott dismissed on summary judgment.”
