Businesses face scrutiny of their competitive practices from antitrust agencies at the state, federal and international levels. We guide you through pre-merger notifications, merger analysis, pricing and other issues that draw the attention of regulators. We have hands-on experience with the economic analyses frequently required in antitrust matters, and have worked with experts who include Nobel-prize winners and former senior economists for governmental agencies. Both plaintiffs and defendants have relied on us in civil antitrust litigation (including class actions), governmental investigations and administrative actions. Among other matters, we have successfully defended a Fortune 500 company in class-action price-fixing claims, a major health care organization accused by a competitor of antitrust violations, a boutique investment bank accused of state antitrust violations, and a major electronic payment processing organization in connection with a governmental investigation.
