Julie Waddell's practice is a blend of complex litigation and regulatory counseling with a focus on the transportation, health care, and utility industries.

Ms. Waddell has over two decades of experience in antitrust, products liability, mass tort and RICO law. She has represented clients in all facets of litigation, from pretrial proceedings through appeals, and in grand jury investigations. Her experience in the products liability arena includes strategic counseling of clients faced with mass tort claims as well as defending lawsuits in state, federal and multidistrict litigation proceedings across the U.S. On the transactional side, Ms. Waddell's practice centers on competition issues presented by mergers and acquisitions in concentrated industries and matters arising under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act.
