Navigating National Antitrust Laws
When it comes to antitrust law, you want to avoid problems, such as grand jury proceedings and lawsuits. We can help you structure your business in a way that will keep you out of trouble. If you find yourself in a dispute, we offer plaintiff and defense counsel for individuals and businesses.
Antitrust cases can manifest themselves in many ways, and you do not have to be a large company to face concerns. For example, if two companies reach an agreement that impacts pricing for their clients, they could be found liable of antitrust violations.
Penalties for Violation of Antitrust Laws
If an antitrust lawsuit is filed against your business in civil court, you will be subject to treble damages for triple the amount of the value, if you are found liable. If the government presses criminal charges, you face a major felony and a possible prison sentence, in addition to heavy fines.
