Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. has been selected for inclusion on the National Law Journal’s Plaintiffs Hot List, which identifies the most successful practices. To compile the annual list, NLJ asks its readers to nominate firms in the United States that have done “exemplary, cutting-edge work on the plaintiffs’ side.” Criteria for selection includes “at least one significant plaintiffs’ win between Feb. 1, 2013, and Jan. 21, 2014, and “an impressive track record of wins in the past three to five years.”
The magazine spotlights two of the firm’s cases in particular:
- October 2013 Oklahoma City jury verdict and settlement against Toyota Motor Corporation and Toyota Motor Sales for litigation related to sudden unintended acceleration, which was handled by Jere Beasley, Cole Portis, Graham Esdale and Ben Baker.
- Ongoing litigation related to Average Wholesale Price / Medicaid Fraud, and in particular the Mississippi Average Wholesale Pricing ruling against Watson Pharmaceuticals. The case was one of about 360 the firm has pursued nationwide involving allegations that drug companies manipulated prices and overcharged Medicaid programs. The firm has recovered more than $1.3 billion for eight states’ attorneys general in the fraudulent pharmaceutical pricing scheme. Dee Miles, Clay Barnett, Chad Stewart and Ali Hawthorne handled this case.
