On July 28, 2022, Bloomberg featured partner Luke McCloud in its series “They’ve Got Next: The 40 Under 40 in Appellate & Intellectual Property.” According to the publication, the series highlights the future of the legal profession – young lawyers who are making their mark in key cases before courts across the country. Bloomberg featured Luke’s win on behalf of his client before the Supreme Court in Concepcion v. United States, a case about the interpretation of the First Step Act.* “I’ve worked on a dozen or so Supreme Court cases, but this was the first case I argued, so the win is especially sweet,” Luke said during his interview with Bloomberg. The series also highlighted Luke’s work in IP: “I’m very proud of the work I’ve done for Genentech over biosimilar Avastin. Genentech’s suit against Amgen was one of the first Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act cases to get deep into litigation. The upshot was that I got the opportunity to litigate some novel statutory issues in multiple courts, including an appeal I argued in the Federal Circuit. Genentech ended up reaching a favorable settlement, which I think is a testament to the persistence and creativity of the client and our team at Williams & Connolly.”
