Berger & Montague serves as co-lead counsel on behalf of a
proposed class of direct purchasers of dental supplies and
equipment from Henry Schein, Inc., Patterson Companies, Inc., and
Benco Dental Supply Company, the three largest distributors of
dental supplies in the United States.
Plaintiffs allege that defendants entered into an
anticompetitive conspiracy to boycott would-be competitors and
deter other entities from doing business with competitors.
Plaintiffs further allege that as a result of defendants' conduct,
plaintiffs and members of the class have paid supracompetitive
prices to defendants for dental supplies and equipment.
On September 28, 2016, the Court denied the defendants' motion
to dismiss and ruled that the case could proceed. A copy of the
court's opinion is here.
