Antitrust is at the intersection of law and business, and Haynes and Boone’s Antitrust and Competition Practice Group understands that the right solution accommodates both. Our clients benefit from our lawyers' depth and breadth of experience in government, private practice, and business settings. With antitrust lawyers in Houston, Dallas and Washington, we can quickly assemble a team with the right mix of skills to respond to any client need. Some of the areas in which we have helped clients are counseling and compliance, government civil investigations, international cartels, merger clearance, private antitrust litigation and U.S. criminal investigations and prosecutions.

Because our group includes experienced antitrust trial lawyers, trial strategy is part of our approach from day one. That focused approach is a critical advantage, allowing us to achieve favorable results in the pre-trial phase or try the case effectively if it goes to trial. Many of our antitrust lawyers are sought-out speakers and authors and have been recognized by their peers for their achievements. We understand how the antitrust enforcement agencies operate because many of us have held high-level government positions in the past and continue to serve in leadership roles in the antitrust bar.
