Johnny prosecutes antitrust class actions on behalf of consumers harmed by price-fixing, monopolization, and other anticompetitive conduct.
Johnny Shaw represents consumers in antitrust class action lawsuits involving price-fixing, monopolization, and other anticompetitive conduct. He has litigated cases against some of the most powerful companies in the pharmaceutical, technology, aerospace, and agriculture industries, among others.
He has contributed to a number of notable cases, including a class action brought against drug makers alleging anticompetitive conduct to delay entry of a generic version of a drug; an ongoing multidistrict litigation against a property management software company and real estate firms for allegedly colluding to inflate rental prices; class actions brought by pharmacies alleging inflated drug prices; and a class action against local television station owners for allegedly participating in a scheme to artificially inflate ad prices.
Johnny’s professional experience in law began when he served as legal intern for Rhode Island Legal Services, where he assisted in the representation of indigent clients facing prison time for failing to pay child support. He worked as a paralegal before law school, including for two years as a litigation paralegal at the New York office of one of the world’s largest law firms. He also served as a law clerk, investigating and developing antitrust class actions through the entire litigation process.
While gaining valuable legal experience as a paralegal and law clerk, Johnny attended evening classes to pursue his law degree. He graduated from Fordham University of School of Law, where he was a member of the Fordham Law Review and served as a research assistant to two law school professors.
