Tiffany Lipscomb-Jackson is a seasoned commercial litigator with substantial experience in the petroleum, pharmaceutical, and automotive industries, with a focus on antitrust and competition issues. She has extensive experience with multijurisdictional and multiparty matters alleging bid-rigging, price-fixing, and illegal monopolization brought by private plaintiffs and state attorneys general. This work includes defending against allegations premised on the alleged misuse of intellectual property rights or the regulatory approval processes to extend market exclusivity for brand name drugs (purported "product hops").

Tiffany has more than a decade of experience defending clients in bet-the-company class action litigation in a wide range of cases, including antitrust, consumer protection, civil RICO, and breach of contract. Currently, she is leading a team defending a private university against claims brought by a putative nationwide class arising out of the university's decision to move to online education in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is heading efforts to defeat class certification in a series of utility class actions pending in federal and state court.

Tiffany has also been a key member of the Firm's COVID-19 Task Force, counseling dozens of clients on force majeure, premise liability, and other liability issues. She has helped companies shape return to work policies, advising on issues such as duty of care, disclaimers, waivers, potential immunities, and class action concerns.

Tiffany also has a robust pro bono practice, which includes successfully representing clients seeking to adopt children and immigrants seeking relief before the United States Immigration Court and federal courts of appeal.
