Antitrust & Competition Law

When allegations of anticompetitive conduct are tossed out, they can be explosive. We know whether they’re duds. Our team advises trade associations, manufacturers, real estate owners and cooperatives, fashion designers, retailers, technology companies, and others — and helps them to avoid being a target entirely.

Our experience spans the spectrum of federal and state antitrust practice: contracts, pricing, and distribution strategy; competitor, customer, and class action litigation; government investigations; and matters at the intersection of intellectual property and antitrust.

Our experience in antitrust law and regulation, combined with our extensive industry knowledge, enables us to provide effective insight and practical counseling. We work closely with client teams to develop tailored, cost-effective strategies for their antitrust challenges. Our track record of success speaks for itself.
