Various alphabetized medical records

CRA was retained by a plaintiff generic manufacturer in antitrust litigation involving an infused hospital pharmaceutical product. At issue were claims involving the alleged foreclosure of active pharmaceutical ingredient via exclusive contracts between the incumbent brand manufacturer and approved suppliers, resulting in a delay in filing for regulatory approval and launch of the generic.

The approach to damages entailed developing a discounted cash flow model according to which lost profits could be determined under different assumptions about market entry circumstances.
