The health and success of a company can be jeopardized by the conduct of competitors or suppliers which are grounded in unfair competition, price fixing, trade infractions, or monopolization. Actions involving these claims can implicate the full array of federal, state, and international antitrust and competition laws. Whether as a plaintiff, defendant, or subject of a criminal or regulatory governmental investigation, a company dealing with these issues requires sophisticated litigation experience to navigate this extremely complicated and specialized area of the law.
The Antitrust Team represents both plaintiffs and defendants in all matters involving the federal and state antitrust laws. Our representation generally begins well before litigation commences, and continues through trial and all levels of appeal. We also represent clients who are the subjects of Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission and State Regulatory investigations. We are currently engaged in some of the largest U.S. antitrust suits, including the representation of major opt-out plaintiffs in the precedent setting LCD multi-district litigation pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
