Attorneys at Emerson Firm, PLLC serve clients nationally in antitrust cases. We have a long history of successfully prosecuting antitrust claims to protect consumers and hold those accountable for Sherman Act violations, including price fixing, bid rigging, and other fraudulent business practices.
Antirust law has a long history in the United States, starting with the Sherman Antitrust Act. Several federal antitrust laws were created later, including the Clayton Antitrust Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Lanham Act, and the Robinson-Patman Act. These are used in conjunction with other state and federal laws to govern interstate commerce and create a fair marketplace that operates with integrity.
Although most think antitrust only involves monopolization, antitrust is a constantly evolving section of the law. Antitrust is both a unique part of the law and cross disciplinary. Businesses can run afoul of antirust law in a number of ways, including business structuring, licensing, corporate transactions, litigation, regulation, marketing, pricing, distribution and more. Because of the unique nature of antitrust law, working with an experienced and well-versed team of attorneys is paramount. If you believe you have been a victim of illegal antitrust practices, you may have an antitrust claim.
Cases may include some of the following areas:
- Monopolization or attempted monopolization
- Predatory pricing
- Refusals to deal
- Pay to delay agreements
- Exclusive dealing
- Restraint of trade, resale, pricing, or territories
- Price fixing, bid-rigging, and information sharing
- Collective boycotts
