We have represented clients in federal antitrust litigation, including both plaintiffs and defendants. We have handled cases involving price fixing, market allocation, monopolization, tie-ins, refusals to deal, mergers and acquisitions and price discrimination. Our work has included presentations to the United States Department of Justice.
We also have substantial experience in prosecuting and defending claims under California’s unfair competition and unfair practices laws. We have prosecuted and defended unfair competition cases in both state and federal courts, including claims arising from the misappropriation of trade secrets and solicitation of employees.
We also provide antitrust and trade regulation advice in connection with specific transactions and trade practices to a diverse array of clients. We routinely advise clients on specific agreements to comply with the Sherman Act, Robinson Patman Act, Clayton Act and other antitrust laws. We also advise clients regarding Hart Scott Rodino compliance. Our attorneys regularly provide advice on product distribution and dealer termination issues.
Among our clients in antitrust and trade regulation matters are manufacturers of various products and equipment distributed on a national or regional basis and computer technology.
