We represent individuals and companies from a broad range of industries in federal and international antitrust investigations and trials alleging price-fixing, monopolization, bid rigging, and illegal boycotting. Our experience as former federal prosecutors is invaluable in guiding an individual or company identified as a “target” or “subject” through any antitrust investigation.
We work to avoid indictment and achieve early dismissals before protracted discovery begins. Our deep trial experience allows us to handle a criminal trial or the parallel civil litigation that often arises after the announcement of a government investigation.
