Antitrust and Competition Law

Barnes & Thornburg’s Antitrust and Competition Law attorneys provide quality, cost-effective litigation and counseling services to clients on a regional, national and international basis. We have represented hundreds of entities, ranging from small local governments and non-profits to large international corporations, in virtually all aspects of antitrust and competition law, including compliance and litigation avoidance, complex litigation, criminal and civil enforcement actions brought by federal and state agencies, nationwide private class actions, multidistrict litigation and individual lawsuits.

We will deliver the services you need pursuant to a value-driven yet result-oriented approach. We have the resources necessary to handle virtually any engagement in any U.S. jurisdiction. We have successfully resolved cases for clients in actions alleging restraint of trade and monopolization (including Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act); price discrimination; and violations of state antitrust laws and other competition-related statutes at every stage of the litigation or agency process.

Additionally, we have substantial experience in other aspects of antitrust law, including mergers and acquisitions (Hart Scott Rodino filings); development and implementation of antitrust compliance policies and personnel training programs; distribution, marketing and price counseling; trade association counseling; standards development; and intellectual property licensing, among other areas.

We have substantial experience in working with clients to evaluate potential antitrust and competition issues in everyday business decisions. We can help you analyze how these legal issues apply to important decisions relating to potential joint ventures, pricing, marketing, foreign trade issues, and more. We are committed to working with you as your partner and learning about your business so as to best understand your needs and to provide efficient, effective legal services.
