antitrust
Overview

Federal and state statutes protect trade and commerce from unlawful restraint, price discrimination, price fixing and monopolies, generally to promote fair competition for the benefit of consumers. Violations can result in loss of business property, sanctions such as the invalidity of a patent, and civil and criminal penalties. We advise clients on how to lawfully protect their business property within the confines of antitrust law and still obtain the benefits they have earned.
