Antitrust & Trade Regulation

Summary

Under federal or state laws, antitrust issues can arise not only from business combinations or mergers, but also from rules imposed by manufacturers or franchisors on other entities in the chain of distribution, marketplace interactions between competing firms, the licensing of intellectual property, or differential pricing policies. Routinely, government agencies, regulators, consumers, and competitors invoke false advertising and unfair competition statutes against businesses. Additionally, contracts, remedies, and warranties often generate business disputes and lawsuits.

These aren’t the calmest of waters, and certainly not best navigated alone. This is exactly why you call us.

We can tackle the headiest of antitrust and trade regulation situations, and there is a very real chance we will resolve your issues before litigation is even threatened.  Sometimes the very best way to defend the claim is to avoid it altogether.
