Antitrust is an ever-increasing concern to every business. Criminal and civil penalties for antitrust violations have been substantially expanded. Mergers and acquisitions face heightened scrutiny with several hundred challenges to mergers by the federal antitrust agencies in recent years. State attorneys general have become more active in the antitrust area. International authorities such as the European Union have also greatly expanded their antitrust reach. Antitrust class actions and multi-district litigation have increased substantially over the past several years.

Our antitrust attorneys successfully represent clients in a full range of antitrust matters, including litigating complex civil and criminal cases, whether government or private, counseling and risk reduction through establishment of compliance programs and antitrust audits, ushering mergers and acquisitions through the various competition authorities around the world, and other diverse matters. The Antitrust team earned recognition in Global Competition Review's 2012 "GCR 100" rankings—a comprehensive, independent assessment of the world's top antitrust and competition practices. The Antitrust group is recommended as one of the best practices in the U.S. Government Antitrust marketplace.
