Director, Business Development

Kendall S. Zylstra was a partner in Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP’s Pennsylvania office and Chair of the firm’s Antitrust Litigation Department.  Zylstra joined Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP at the beginning of 2008, after many years litigating complex commercial and civil litigation in the complex class action arena. 
Zylstra has spent the last several years focusing on antitrust class actions challenging practices such as unfair trade practices, national price-fixing claims, monopolies, and the delayed-generic entry pharmaceutical cases.

Prior to joining the Firm, Zylstra represented victims of human radiation experiments from the Cold War Era.  He was significantly responsible for litigating two mass actions, which settled for nearly $5 million and played a significant role in winning a reversal of summary judgment in Bibeau, et al. v. Pacific Northwest Research Foundation, et al., 188 F. 3d 1005 (9th Circ. 1999).

For over five years, Zylstra was the Head of the Antitrust Department at a notable plaintiff’s class action litigation firm, and developed a portfolio of antitrust cases, including gasoline dealer-franchises suing large oil companies for unfair trade practices; representing medical device wholesalers and distributors asserting antitrust claims against monopolists; and representing two internet companies in a litigation asserting vertical price fixing claims against a giant retailer and its co-conspirator manufacturers.

Zylstra graduated from Calvin College in 1987 with a Bachelor of Arts and from Temple University School of Law (J.D. 1991) where he received the Temple Law Alumni/ae Award for Moot Court Excellence.  Zylstra was an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia, PA between 1991-1996, where he gained extensive trial experience in the prosecution of hundreds of cases primarily involving cases of sexual assault.
