Who's Who Legal Competition: US Plaintiff

Joseph S Hall, a partner at Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel PLLC, has more than 15 years of experience representing both individuals and corporations in a wide variety of complex, competition-related matters.  He has represented Fortune 15 companies and start-ups alike in both prosecuting and defending cases involving anti-competitive conduct, intellectual property rights, and other federal and state competition claims. 

Mr Hall served as lead appellate counsel before the Federal Circuit in Ritz Camera & Image, LLC v SanDisk Corp, 700 F.3d 503 (Fed. Cir. 2012), where he successfully represented Ritz Camera and a proposed class in an interlocutory appeal. The case established that the Supreme Court’s decision in Walker Process allowed direct purchasers to bring antitrust claims under Section 2 of the Sherman Act for monopolisation based on fraudulently procured patents regardless of whether the purchaser has independent standing to challenge the validity of the patent.

Mr Hall has also represented individuals and corporations in governmental investigations, including those involving allegations of anticompetitive conduct.

Mr Hall was named a Rising Star in 2013 for general litigation in Super Lawyers, and received an Honorable Mention Award from the American Antitrust Institute for Achievement in Antitrust Litigation in 2013.

Mr Hall graduated with honours in Philosophy from Duke University in 1995 and cum laude from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1999.  He clerked for the Honorable Fred I Parker of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and for the Honorable James Robertson of the US District Court for the District of Columbia.

WWL says: "An absolutely fantastic litigator", he scores highly with our sources across the US
