Antitrust and competition issues affect every business that prices its goods, sells to customers, and interacts with competitors. Not understanding the federal and state competition laws that govern a company's conduct can result in expensive and time-consuming investigations and litigation. Calfee’s antitrust and competition attorneys have for decades counseled clients on the antitrust issues impacting their operations so they can prudently achieve their business goals.
We advise our clients regularly on antitrust issues affecting their everyday operations such as pricing and distribution, employee education and compliance, mergers and acquisitions, and antitrust litigation ranging from smaller disputes to complex antitrust class actions. Our work has assisted clients in industries including manufacturing, retail and consumer goods, food and beverage, automotive parts, health care, chemicals, and real estate. Because understanding competition risks requires detailed knowledge of the marketplace in which a business operates, we learn the details, and we work with our colleagues across the spectrum of Calfee’s practice areas, to ensure our clients are provided cost-effective, responsive, and practical advice.
