The stakes are high for companies and individuals navigating complex and constantly evolving antitrust laws — from criminal penalties, regulatory fines and civil damages to stratospheric litigation costs, business interruption and reputation-crippling headlines.
Loeb & Loeb provides clients throughout the United States and around the world with business-focused counsel on complex antitrust implications of strategic business transactions, including navigating Hart-Scott-Rodino reviews, expansions or operational changes; effective assistance in investigations and government actions; and skilled advocacy in criminal and civil antitrust litigation.
We work with public and private companies, industry trade associations, private equity firms, investors, entrepreneurs, executives and other individuals across a diverse range of industries. We have a particular strength in heavily regulated sectors, where our industry veterans in energy and utilities, pharmaceuticals and health care, and financial services work at the intersection of dual regulatory and competition frameworks.
Unlike many antitrust practitioners who focus on what can’t be done, we partner with clients to devise compliant solutions that advance their commercial objectives, growth, financial success and innovation.
Our Antitrust team helps clients implement comprehensive compliance programs, record keeping, and reporting procedures. We sensitize executives, managers and employees to competition and collusion issues, particularly in our work with industry associations and organizations. We also assist clients with investigations initiated by internal units or whistleblower complaints.
Our litigators bring the highest caliber of legal knowledge, skilled advocacy and courtroom-tested experience to their work on both civil and criminal antitrust litigation. We represent companies and individuals in criminal cartel investigations around the globe, quickly assessing and strategizing the best approach to these multi-agency and multijurisdictional actions. In addition, we advise on investigations by U.S. regulators, including the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and state attorneys general.
Our lawyers also handle follow-on litigation, efficiently coordinating and managing wide-ranging discovery matters and working with expert witnesses on sophisticated economic impact issues at the heart of major antitrust and competition cases.
