    Biography

    Mr. Lukens is a partner in Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP’s Pennsylvania office.

    Mr. Lukens was a shareholder at the Philadelphia firm of Hangley Aronchick Segal Pudlin & Schiller, where he represented large retail pharmacy chains as opt-out plaintiffs in numerous lawsuits under the Sherman Act. Among those lawsuits were In re Brand Name Prescription Drugs Antitrust Litigation (MDL 897, N.D. Ill.), In re Terazosin Hydrochloride Antitrust Litigation (MDL 1317, S.D. Fla.), In re TriCor Direct Purchaser Antitrust Litigation (05-605, D. Del.), In re Nifedipine Antitrust Litigation (MDL1515, D.D.C.), In re OxyContin Antitrust Litigation (04-3719, S.D.N.Y), and In re Chocolate Confectionary Antitrust Litigation (MDL 1935, M.D. Pa.). While the results in the opt-out cases are confidential, the parallel class actions in those matters which are concluded have resulted in settlements exceeding $1.1 billion.

    Earlier in his career, Mr. Lukens concentrated in commercial and civil rights litigation at the Philadelphia firm of Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis. The types of matters that Mr. Lukens handled included antitrust, First Amendment, contracts, and licensing. Mr. Lukens also worked extensively on several notable pro bono cases including Commonwealth v. Morales, which resulted in a rare reversal on a second post-conviction petition in a capital case in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

    Mr. Lukens graduated from LaSalle University (B.A. Political Science, cum laude, 1987) and received his law degree from Temple University School of Law (J.D., magna cum laude, 1992) where he was an editor on the Temple Law Review and received several academic awards. After law school, Mr. Lukens clerked for the Honorable Joseph J. Longobardi, Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the District of Delaware (1992-93). Mr. Lukens is a member of the bars of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania (1992-present), the United States Supreme Court (1996-present); the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania (1993-present), the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (1993-present), and the United States Court of Appeals for the District of New Jersey (1994-present).

    Mr. Lukens has several publications, including: Bringing Market Discipline to Pharmaceutical Product Reformulations, 42 Int'l Rev. Intel. Prop. & Comp. Law 698 (September 2011) (co-author with Steve Shadowen and Keith Leffler); Anticompetitive Product Changes in the Pharmaceutical Industry, 41 Rutgers L.J. 1 (2009) (co-author with Steve Shadowen and Keith Leffler); The Prison Litigation Reform Act: Three Strikes and You’re Out of Court - It May Be Effective, But Is It Constitutional?, 70 Temp.
