Porter Wright's antitrust experience shared in Rose Acre Farms feature
Porter Wright's antitrust practice, its co-chair Jay Levine and the group's experience in the agriculture industry was featured in the Vanguard story, "Joe Miller – Rose Acre Farms: Rose Acre Farms attorney’s work is no game of chicken," published April 22, 2022.
From Vanguard, David Harry reporting:
... "He worked with Porter Wright and partner Jay Levine, who chairs its antitrust and consumer protection practice group. Together, they showed Rose Acre Farms was building more housing for hens and increasing the egg supply while meeting UEP guidelines.
"'Jay and the Porter Wright team have been fantastic to work with on these cases,' Miller says. 'They are extremely knowledgeable about antitrust law and how to present the materials to judges and juries. There were over a million documents in discovery, and they were able to pare that down so the juries could understand an extremely complex case.'
Levine adds the stakes were very high—plaintiffs sought roughly $1 billion in damages and by law, damages could have tripled to $3 billion.
"'It has been our honor to work alongside Joe and be a trusted partner to Rose Acre as they’ve navigated these complex cases,' says Levine."
