Holly Smith Letourneau

Associate, Washington, DC



Holly Letourneau is litigation associate in the Firm's Global Antitrust/Competition practice group. Holly's practice focuses on complex commercial litigation and counseling clients in antitrust matters.

Holly's work includes defending international corporations in large-scale, high-risk litigations, including class actions and opt out actions. Holly represents clients in antitrust disputes before federal courts across the country. She has extensive experience in every stage of litigation, from action inception, through dispositive motions, multi-jurisdictional discovery, settlement negotiations, and trial. Her practice has also included the high profile defense at trial of an individual executive carved out from a company’s leniency agreement with the DOJ antitrust division.

Holly regularly represents leading global pharmaceutical companies in class-action litigation matters at the cutting edge of antitrust and intellectual property, including serving as trial counsel in federal jury trials. Holly has successfully represented pharmaceutical clients in complex civil antitrust litigation involving patent-settlement agreements (sometimes called reverse-payment cases) and high profile antitrust litigations concerning life-cycle management strategies, now challenged as "product hopping," "switching" and "regulatory gaming" strategies. Holly routinely works with fact and expert witnesses on issues related to causation, regulatory matters and generic entry.  She also has experience representing clients in the automotive, shipping and manufacturing industries.

Holly is committed to pro bono service and the firm’s Women's Initiative. Her pro bono work includes leading a four-month secondment with the Federal Public Defender’s office, where she defended indigent clients in criminal matters ranging from securing compassionate release for prisoners to defending a felony trial.

During law school, Holly was a member of the Jessup Moot Court team and interned with the Department of Justice Office of International Affairs. Holly continues to mentor future Jessup members in preparation for competition.
