Our Florida Antitrust Litigation Attorneys Take Cases Across the Nation
We are proud to hold one of the top commercial litigation practices in the country.
Antitrust laws go back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and are intended to combat the potential danger of unchecked corporate monopolization of a particular market. The Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890 and Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914 laid the groundwork for antitrust litigation by outlawing all insider agreements between competing companies that would stifle trade.
Businesses who engage in these practices can do serious harm to struggling entities. Therefore, corporations who face antitrust accusations need a strong defense to put these claims to rest. Each antitrust lawyer at our firm has experience representing companies accused of violating antitrust laws. As a result, we can help businesses struggling against an unfairly competitive corporate landscape created by unlawful backroom deals.
What Constitutes Antitrust?
The chief antitrust offenses include the following:
- Price Fixing – Secret agreements between supposedly competing companies to set price ceilings and floors.
- Bid Rigging – Bids between firms supposedly competing for a contract when they have already decided who is going to get the contract.
- Customer Allocation – Agreements between companies to not compete for certain customer demographics or regions.
When major corporations breach antitrust laws, it is always at the expense of everyday consumers and small businesses. Illegal antitrust activities stifle the market’s natural ability to foster innovation, regulate business practices and keep prices low.
Our law firm has experience assisting a wide variety of corporate entities throughout our decades of experience, including:
- Lenders and insurers
- Small business and entrepreneurs
- Large corporations
- Developers and contractors
- Individual plaintiffs
Attorneys for Antitrust Disputes and Litigation
As most small businesses cannot compete with collaborating antitrust violators, taking legal action is the only recourse capable of curbing such practices. Fraudulent corporations invest a lot of money in protecting their antitrust violations, so be sure that you work with a law firm with the resources and expertise to take on a major corporation.
If you face antitrust violations, you need a firm experienced with multinational corporate defense. We have handled a number of cases involving a range of business disputes. For example, our past cases include tax fraud, money laundering, extortion, importing/exporting and environmental torts. Additionally, we routinely provide companies with confidential investigations to ensure compliance with state, federal and international law.
We have offices in Florida, and we handle cases across the nation. In addition, many of our cases have taken us overseas. Do not hesitate to get in touch with an antitrust lawyer if you need an experienced firm to resolve your case.
