David M. Foster

Washington, D.C.

David M. Foster

Over the past decade, David Foster has played leading roles in some of the most significant litigation matters at Hogan Lovells, and has contributed to important victories on behalf of clients.

David was a leading member of a litigation team that obtained a victory for General Electric Capital Corporation in a series of state and federal lawsuits in which a group of plaintiffs and a federal bankruptcy trustee alleged that our client was liable for over US$2.3bn in judgments that the plaintiffs had obtained against other entities.

As a litigator in our Washington, D.C. office, David has accumulated broad experience in a wide range of services, including commercial litigation, government investigations, pharmaceutical price-reporting disputes, and claims under the False Claims Act, the civil RICO statute, and state and federal antitrust and consumer protection laws. He has represented an array of clients, many of which are in the life sciences and financial services industries.

In 2005, David received Harvard Law School's Victor Brudney Prize for best paper on the topic of corporate governance. Before attending law school, David worked for a consulting firm that specialized in providing expert testimony for antitrust litigation.
