Hittinger will be asked to create a multidisciplinary litigation practice in the city that will work with the firm’s 13 other offices for both local and national cases. Hittinger has experience with complex litigation matters involving unfair competition and antitrust issues.

Joseph Lucci is the managing partner of the firm’s office in Philadelphia. Lucci said the following in the press release:

“The integration between Woodcock and BakerHostetler has gone very well in a very short time, and expanding our office capabilities beyond intellectual property was a logical next step in our growth. Carl Hittinger is a top-notch litigator with a versatile skill set and a sterling reputation in antitrust matters. We’re excited that he’s decided to lead the build-out of a broad litigation platform here in Philadelphia.”

Hittinger discussed his interest in the firm by saying the following:

“BakerHostetler’s decision to establish a broad-based litigation practice in Philadelphia and to ask me to lead it presented an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up. I had previously served as co-counsel with Woodcock Washburn lawyers on several trademark cases and was highly impressed with their solid expertise and problem-solving approach to our matters. This is an exciting challenge to build a high-stakes litigation practice group in Philadelphia and I look forward to working with the firm’s litigation practice nationally on a host of matters. I’m particularly pleased to also become a part of BakerHostetler’s antitrust group, which under Bob Abrams’ leadership is one of the best in the country.”

Hittinger earned his law degree from Temple University School of Law. He also earned his B.A. from Temple University. Following graduation from law school, Hittinger clerked for Chief Judge Emeritus Louis C. Bechtle (E.D.P.A.).

Robert G. Abrams is the head of the firm’s Antitrust and Competition practice. Abrams said the following in the release:

“Carl Hittinger has established an outstanding reputation as a trial lawyer in Philadelphia, capable of handling complicated cases on antitrust matters as well as others. Increasingly, antitrust and IP issues intersect in multiple industries, and having Carl based in Philadelphia will be a boon to our firm and the clients we serve.”
