Antitrust

MDM&C’s Antitrust Practice Group combines the capabilities of more than a dozen of the firm’s attorneys who possess deep experience in antitrust litigation and investigations, as well as related merger and acquisition representation across a broad range of industries. 

The group addresses the growing need for seasoned counsel to advocate for, or challenge transactions and business practices, in courts and before federal and state antitrust enforcement agencies.  The firm also counsels companies on all aspects of antitrust, including antitrust compliance programs, distribution arrangements, licensing agreements, agency business reviews, merger analysis, litigation risk assessment, as well as issues related to standard setting groups and the interface between intellectual property and antitrust law.

As Federal and State antitrust authorities have quickened the pace of both civil and criminal prosecutions of major participants in large industries – including pharmaceuticals, financial services, and food & beverages – nationwide class actions seeking significant damages for consumers have also accelerated based upon rulings and settlements obtained by regulatory agencies. MDM&C has had notable success in defending such cases, and, in the case of anticompetitive activity causing harm to US businesses, has obtained redress for such clients in numerous instances.
