In 2014, Hagens Berman filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that Pfizer delayed generic competition for successful pain reliever Celebrex.
The litigation captioned In re Celebrex (Celecoxib) Antitrust Litigation (Civil Action No. 2:14-cv-00361) was previously before the Honorable Arenda L. Wright Allen of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

The lawsuit claims Pfizer violated federal antitrust laws by making misrepresentations and omitting material facts in proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office in order to obtain a reissue patent covering Celebrex, and that asserting to the patent prevented generic versions of Celebrex from entering the United States market. The lawsuit alleges these actions were anticompetitive and caused plaintiffs and members of the class to incur significant damages. Pfizer denies each and every one of these allegations of unlawful conduct and has not conceded or admitted any liability as part of the proposed settlement.
