Biography

Peter J. Carney is a litigator who represents clients in complex litigation at all levels in federal and state courts and in government investigations and proceedings. His practice focuses on civil and criminal antitrust defense. Peter also serves as the head of the Firm's Global Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Group, which pools the talents of more than 100 senior lawyers with regulatory, litigation, antitrust, M&A, corporate and tax experience.

Legal directories Chambers USA and Legal 500 (US) rank Mr. Carney as a top antitrust lawyer in the United States, describing him as "a very solid litigator" (Chambers USA 2018). Law360 named Mr. Carney as one of the Competition Law MVPs in the United States (2016).

In addition to defending clients in price-fixing cases brought by the United States Department of Justice Antitrust Division and the Federal Trade Commission, Mr. Carney routinely represents clients in cartel investigations brought by antitrust enforcers in a variety of non-US jurisdictions, including Europe, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. His clients include both US and non-US companies, as well as foreign sovereign entities.

For nearly two decades, he has successfully represented pharmaceutical clients in complex civil antitrust litigation involving patent-settlement agreements (sometimes called reverse-payment cases), both in federal court class actions and at trial before the Federal Trade Commission. Mr. Carney also represents pharmaceutical companies in investigations and high profile antitrust litigations concerning life-cycle management strategies, now challenged as "product hopping" and "switching" strategies.

Mr. Carney also has experience representing clients in international arbitration, including the World Bank's ICSID forum and ad hoc international arbitration. He was counsel in one of the leading US Supreme Court cases regarding the issue of class arbitration. He also advises clients on the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act and has litigated FSIA cases.

Mr. Carney serves as one of eight partners on the Firm’s global Partnership Committee, a partner-elected governance body.

Prior to joining White & Case, Mr. Carney served as a law clerk to the Honorable H. Emory Widener, Jr. of the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
