Antitrust and Competition Litigation

Practice hero image

Both state and federal law protects businesses and consumers from anticompetitive and otherwise unfair trade practices. These laws include the Sherman Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act, and the Clayton Act, which were each passed to ensure fair competition in the marketplace. These laws mandate that businesses operate fairly to keep prices competitive and quality high. Antitrust laws are complex and constantly changing from court and legislative actions. However, they provide valuable guidance and important incentives to keep business practices fair.
