We help companies navigate the antitrust laws, win antitrust litigation, and deal with antitrust enforcement agencies. Our antitrust practice is led by a former government antitrust official with over 20 years of experience litigating antitrust cases and counseling on antitrust issues. We have won antitrust cases at trial, defeated antitrust claims through dispositive motions, successfully advocated before the DOJ and FTC, and written in leading antitrust publications.
