Our Antitrust capabilities are provided by 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 and Acquisition analyses
- Litigation Risk Assessment
- Issues relating to standard setting, 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.
Our Firm has had notable success in defending these major cases, and, in the case of anticompetitive activity causing harm to US businesses, has obtained redress for those clients in numerous instances.
