Gretchen L. Jankowski, shareholder and co-chair of Buchanan's Litigation section, is quoted in a Bloomberg article "Mask-Maker 3M Files Lawsuits Against Alleged Price-Gougers" regarding federal and state price gouging statutes.

"There is no federal price gouging statute," though Congress is considering legislation to address prices charged to consumers, businesses and governments during the pandemic, said Gretchen Jankowski, a lawyer with Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney in Pittsburgh. Many state laws "typically do not apply to state and hospital purchases, but rather focus on the sale of essential goods and services to consumers."
