Antitrust & Competition

Bilzin Sumberg was named 2017 Top Litigation Department of the Year in the Antitrust category by the Daily Business Review. The Bilzin Sumberg Antitrust Group was named a finalist for the National Law Journal’s 2016 Elite Trial Lawyers report in the Antitrust category, one of only five firms nationwide, and was previously awarded the national "Antitrust Firm of the Year-South" by Benchmark Litigation in 2013. Actions involving unfair competition, price fixing, trade infractions or monopolization 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. 

Bilzin Sumberg's 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.
