Jeffrey Corrigan has been a partner in the firm since 2000, specializing in complex antitrust litigation. He previously served in the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice from 1990-2000, where he gained extensive experience investigating, prosecuting and trying complex antitrust and other white collar criminal cases. While at the DOJ, Mr. Corrigan served as lead counsel on numerous federal grand jury investigations and was nominated for the Attorney General's Distinguished Service Award for his work as lead counsel on a major case involving bid-rigging at state courthouses in Queens and Brooklyn in New York City, which resulted in 49 guilty pleas.
Mr. Corrigan is currently serving as sole Liaison and Interim Lead Class Counsel in In re Blood Reagents Antitrust Litigation, MDL 09-2081 (E.D. Pa.), a nation-wide, price-fixing class action into the market for blood reagents, which are used for testing blood. In January 2010, Judge Jan DuBois appointed SRKW as sole Interim Lead Class Counsel, and Jeffrey Corrigan as Liaison Counsel.
He recently concluded his role as Lead Counsel in In re OSB Antitrust Litigation, No. 06cv826 (E.D. Pa.), a nation-wide, price-fixing class action. Mr. Corrigan spearheaded plaintiffs' efforts to successfully certify a class of thousands of direct purchasers of OSB (oriented strand board, used primarily as flooring, roofing and walls in residential construction) from nine defendants - all billion dollar OSB producers. He then directed plaintiffs' discovery, expert-related and pre-trial efforts right up until the eve of trial, where the case settled for more than $120 million. In approving the last of the settlements in January 2009, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Diamond stated: "Counsel have represented their clients with consummate skill and efficiency, bringing this massive matter to conclusion in less than three years. Lead class counsel - Jeffrey Corrigan and the other lawyers from Spector Roseman Kodroff & Willis - performed brilliantly in this exceptionally difficult case."
Mr. Corrigan previously served as plaintiffs' Lead Counsel in In re Mercedes-Benz Antitrust Litigation (D.N.J.), a price-fixing class action against Mercedes-Benz U.S.A. and its New York tri-state area dealers (settled for $17.5 million). At a May 18, 2009 hearing, U.S. District Court Judge William Walls stated: "I think that this is a fitting resolution of what has been a very protracted course of litigation. And I think overall you are to be commended." Judge Walls then approved SRKW's motion for distribution of the settlement funds, which compensated the vast majority of class members at 140% of their damages.
He also served as Lead Counsel in In re Linerboard Antitrust Litigation (E.D. Pa.), a nation-wide price-fixing class action against billion-dollar manufacturers of linerboard, which is used to make cardboard sheets and boxes (settled for $202 million), and In re Flat Glass Antitrust Litigation (W.D. Pa.), a nation-wide price-fixing class action against billion-dollar manufacturers of flat glass products, used in construction and the automotive industry. He has also served or is serving as plaintiffs' counsel in numerous other class actions throughout the country.
Mr. Corrigan is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey, and in the United States District Courts for the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York, and the District of New Jersey, as well as the Third and D.C. Circuits. He is a graduate of The State University of New York at Stony Brook (B.A., Economics, 1985) and Fordham University School of Law (J.D., 1990), where he was a member of the Moot Court Board.
