We have extensive experience in antitrust and competition law matters – from business counseling and planning to civil and criminal litigation and appeal. Our experience covers a broad variety of significant antitrust and competition matters. Between our antitrust and appellate attorneys, we have argued or briefed nearly every type of significant antitrust case.
Antitrust litigation requires an in-depth understanding of state and federal doctrine as it applies to promoting fair trade and competitive markets. The Sherman and Clayton Acts are statutes that dictate antitrust rules and offenses in the United States. Our attorneys are experienced and versed in litigating matters under this body of law and have also dealt with similar matters in international jurisdictions including Canada and the European Union.
Our experience spans the range of antitrust matters:
- Price-fixing and monopolization
- Domestic and international cartel prosecution
- Unfair competition
- Price discrimination
- Intellectual property
- Merger-related litigation
Our clients come from an equally broad range of industries, from heavy industry to banking and high tech.
