H. Laddie Montague, Jr. is the President and shareholder of the firm and is Chairman of the Antitrust Department. He has been with the firm since its inception in 1970. Mr. Montague focuses his practice on antitrust and class action litigation.

Mr. Montague was one of the courtroom trial counsel for plaintiffs in In re Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Litigation, C.A. No. A89-095 (D. Alaska) which culminated in a record-setting punitive damage award against Exxon. For his work in the above case, Mr. Montague shared (with the entire trial team) the "1995 Trial Lawyer of the Year" award given by the Trial Lawyers for Public Justice.

Mr. Montague has served as lead or co-lead counsel in many high-profile class actions, including In re Infant Formula Antitrust Litigation (1993) and Bogosian v. Gulf Oil Corp., a nationwide class action against thirteen major oil companies (1984). He was co-lead counsel for the state of Connecticut in its litigation against the tobacco industry.

Mr. Montague has been co-lead counsel in numerous antitrust cases, including in In re Brand Name Prescription Drugs Antitrust Litigation, M.D.L. 997 (N.D. Ill.) and one of three co-lead counsel in In re High Fructose Corn Syrup Antitrust Litigation, M.D.L. No. 1087 (C.D. Ill.). He was a co-lead counsel in In re Microcrystalline Cellulose Antitrust Litigation (E.D. Pa.) and In re Carbon Black Antitrust Litigation (D. Mass.) and co-lead counsel representative in The State of Connecticut Tobacco Litigation. In addition to the Exxon Valdez Litigation, he has tried several complex, protracted cases to jury, including three class actions: In re Master Key Antitrust Litigation, (1977), In re Corrugated Container Antitrust Litigation (1980), and In re Brand Name Prescription Drugs Antitrust Litigation (1998).

Mr. Montague has been repeatedly singled out by Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business as one of the top antitrust attorneys in the City of Philadelphia. He is lauded for his stewardship of the firm's antitrust department, referred to as the "dean of the Bar," stating that his peers in the legal profession hold him in the "highest regard," and explicitly praised for, among other things, his "fair minded[ness]." He is also listed in Lawdragon 500; An International Who's of Competition Lawyers; and The Legal 500, United States (Litigation).

Mr. Montague has been invited and made presentations at Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (Paris, 2006); European Commission and International Bar Association Seminar (Brussels, 2007); Canadian Bar Association, Competition Section (Ottawa, 2008); and 2010 Competition Law & Policy Forum (Ontario)

A frequent lecturer on class action litigation, he has presented for the Practicing Law Institute, the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and the Antitrust Section of the American Bar Association. He has also appeared on panels for the Competition Section of the Canadian Bar Association. He taught a complex litigation course at Temple University Beasley School of Law and has been a panelist at the Federal Bench-Bar Conference for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Mr. Montague was a member of the 1984 faculty of the Columbia Law School Continuing Legal Educational Program entitled "The Trial of an Antitrust Case." He has testified before Congress with respect to antitrust and business fraud legislation, including the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act ("RICO").
