PHILADELPHIA, September 8, 2021―John D. Huh has joined Duane Morris LLP as a partner in the firm’s Trial Practice Group in its Philadelphia office. Prior to joining Duane Morris, Huh was a partner at DLA Piper.
“John’s extensive background in litigation, government investigations and compliance, and client relationships are an exciting addition to our Trial practice in Philadelphia and for the firm overall,” said Duane Morris Chairman and CEO Matthew A. Taylor. “We’re pleased to be deepening the strength of our firm’s largest practice group with attorneys of the highest caliber. I look forward to the continued and strategic growth of our litigation practice, especially as trial activity ramps up.”
“John is a highly skilled business lawyer who will be a staunch ally and resource for our clients, especially in this environment of increased investigations,” said Wayne A. Mack, co-chair of Duane Morris’ Trial Practice Group. “In addition to his broad and dynamic practice, John brings a positive, entrepreneurial attitude that will be a great fit for the firm’s collegial and collaborative culture,” added Sharon L. Caffrey, co-chair of Duane Morris’ Trial Practice Group.
Huh focuses his practice on litigation, arbitrations, government investigations and compliance, concentrating in the fields of competition law and consumer protection. Huh has more than 15 years of litigation and arbitration experience that includes successfully representing clients dealing with antitrust claims, class action lawsuits, business/economic torts and commercial claims, as well as False Claims Act and other fraud claims. He also has substantial experience litigating the enforcement of noncompetition and nonsolicitation provisions, as well as other competition related restrictive covenants, in various types of business agreements.
In addition to overseeing and conducting internal investigations, Huh has extensive experience representing individuals and companies in government investigations and enforcement actions conducted by state and federal agencies, including the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice and state attorneys general. He has successfully secured closures of federal and state investigations, without any penalty or concession, involving allegations of deceptive marketing practices, collusion, monopolization, anticompetitive information sharing, violations of telemarketing regulations and unfair business practices. Huh frequently assists companies in developing and implementing global antitrust and competition law compliance policies and practices. He also routinely oversees and conducts legal risk assessments of clients’ business practices and strategies, and subsequently provides legal advice that advances the clients’ business objectives in a strategic yet efficient manner. Huh additionally counsels clients by providing analyses on the competitive effects of potential mergers and acquisitions, as well as other business decisions. He also regularly navigates clients through the process of reporting proposed transactions to the federal antitrust agencies under the HSR Act.
“I’m very excited to start the next chapter of my career at Duane Morris,” said Huh. “I look forward to accelerating the growth of my practice with the firm’s robust platform and providing our existing clients the benefit of my previous experience. Also, pushing forward on the diversity and inclusion front is something that is very important to me. And the firm’s commitment and efforts on that front impressed me, and I really look forward to contributing to those efforts.”
