Antitrust and Competition

Sophisticated insight and tenacious representation

We understand what you’re up against: Increased anti-trust scrutiny, both domestically and internationally. Ramped-up cartel enforcement. Record-breaking fines and long sentences for U.S. and foreign executives convicted of antitrust violations. Coordinated parallel investigations across jurisdictions and stepped-up enforcement by foreign competition authorities. We know it’s a lot, and we’re here to help.

Fortune 500 companies and international corporations, as well as their executives and directors, trust us to vigorously defend them against claims of alleged antitrust violations. We represent clients in cartel enforcement proceedings in the United States, assisting them in the defense of parallel cartel investigations initiated by foreign competition authorities, and follow-on private treble damage litigation. We are currently involved in grand jury proceedings across the country investigating allegations of price fixing, bid-rigging, market allocation or other antitrust and related collateral offenses involving fraud and corruption.

The clients we represent in major international cartel investigations are involved in a variety of industries:

  • Air cargo
  • Chemicals
  • Computer memory chips
  • Food additives and flavor enhancements
  • Freight forwarding
  • LCD and CRT
  • Marine hose
  • Vitamins

We deliver practical solutions that work in the real world, based on our extensive experience with:

  • Assessing corporate and individual leniency issues
  • Negotiating with federal, state and international competition authorities
  • Designing and implementing a national or international cartel litigation defense strategy
  • Conducting complex internal investigations of alleged wrongdoing
  • Developing and implementing corporate regulatory compliance programs

Clients benefit from our extensive federal antitrust enforcement experience, and our team includes former high-ranking federal prosecutors and a former Chief of the Dallas Field Office of the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice.

We’re committed to helping you successfully navigate all aspects of the criminal process. We will be by your side every step of the way.
