Kirkland & Ellis litigation partner Devora Allon was named a runner-up as part of Litigation Daily’s ‘Litigators of the Week’ feature for her recent win for Kirkland client Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.
“Our runners up for Litigator of the Week include Kirkland & Ellis partner Devora Allon. She scored for Teva in an antitrust class action arising out of a patent litigation settlement concerning generic versions of anti-seizure drug Lamictal.
Allon successfully petitioned the Third Circuit to grant Teva’s interlocutory appeal challenging the district court’s class certification decision. This is the first time the Third Circuit has questioned direct purchaser plaintiff class certification in reverse payment cases since its landmark Modafinil decision several years ago.”
