David L. Hanselman, Jr. is a partner in the law firm of McDermott Will & Emery LLP and is based in the Firm’s Chicago office.
David represents clients in a broad range of antitrust and class action lawsuits. He is currently leading a team of lawyers from several McDermott offices in four antitrust class actions pending in federal courts across the United States alleging that hospitals engaged in wage-fixing conspiracies. In one of these cases, Reed v. Advocate Health Care, David devised and implemented a strategy to exclude the testimony of plaintiffs’ expert witness at the class certification stage. The resulting decision, which was the first in the Seventh Circuit to apply the principles of the landmark In re Hydrogen Peroxide decision, denied class certification outright on the ground that the expert’s opinions were so unreliable that they were “essentially inadmissible.”
