Civil Litigation
White Collar & Investigations

Few areas in the practice of law present greater challenges than those arising in antitrust litigation. Success in cases involving allegations of price fixing, price discrimination, collusive agreements, restraint of trade, market allocation, bid rigging, or unfair competition requires skillful and experienced advocacy. Whether bringing civil antitrust claims in federal or state courts on behalf of class members and companies, or defending against allegations of anticompetitive conduct in civil, criminal, or regulatory proceedings, the stakes are high. Clients face the possibility of treble damage awards, civil or criminal penalties, injunctions and, in some cases, jail.
