Our Antitrust and Competition Regulation and Enforcement practice includes all aspects of antitrust and competition-related regulatory compliance and defense of clients in antitrust and competition investigations and regulatory enforcement actions. We offer a cross-border perspective, with team members in Washington, D.C., New York, and Europe.
We regularly assist companies and executives in regulatory investigations relating to allegations of antitrust and competition law violations. Our team includes several former federal prosecutors, including a former trial attorney for the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice who spent five years investigating and prosecuting criminal antitrust violations by companies and key individuals. Whether responding to a DOJ criminal investigation or an FTC civil investigation, our Chambers and Legal 500-ranked white collar defense and corporate investigations team has a superb record in achieving favorable results on behalf of our clients. In enforcement actions, we are skilled trial lawyers and are comfortable handling cases in federal courts as well as before FTC administrative law judges.
We have particular strength in helping companies navigate parallel government and civil actions, working with them to determine the most advantageous litigation strategy, including working with economic experts as appropriate, when facing criminal and civil actions relating to the same conduct. We also have significant appellate experience in antitrust and competition matters.
We also regularly counsel clients on regulatory compliance matters for companies across a variety of industries, including representing parties contemplating mergers, acquisitions, and other transactions with competitive implications before the FTC, DOJ, and other regulators. We conduct internal investigations as part of our compliance counseling, when appropriate.
Two of our partners have served in leadership roles within the ABA Antitrust Section for years, and our senior attorneys regularly lecture and write on issues of interest to the antitrust community.
