Defending Individuals and Businesses Accused of Antitrust Violations
Federal and state law enforcement agencies actively investigate and prosecute businesses and individuals accused of collusion activities such as price fixing, bid rigging, and market allocation schemes.
Most federal prosecutions allege violations of either the Sherman Antitrust Act and/or the Clayton Antitrust Act. The Sherman Act generally prohibits any agreement among businesses that unreasonably restrains competition, while its successor the Clayton Act broadens the scope of antitrust legislation to include individualized schemes such as price discrimination and allows greater regulation of monopolies.
Often there is a fine line between competitive business practices and violating antitrust laws.
