In an effort to minimize the antitrust risk posed by the federal and state competition laws, our attorneys focus on providing preventative counseling. A significant component of our work is focused on antitrust as it relates to intellectual property law, including standard setting, patent pools and IP licensing issues.

Our firm’s attorneys are dedicated to helping clients navigate the complex antitrust laws and regulations that may impact clients’ business while at the same time assisting clients to maintain their competitive advantage. Our practice combines attorneys who have substantial experience in federal civil enforcement with lawyers who have litigated complex cases in state and federal courts across the country.

Often corporate transactions require clearance from various enforcement agencies. Our attorneys understand that when a client pursues a merger, acquisition or joint venture, it is critical that the deal be cleared by the government agencies involved as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our attorneys guide the firm’s clients through the premerger review process and coordinate the process to ensure the process proceeds as seamlessly as possible.

Our firm also handles various other types of governmental investigations and enforcement actions, including responding to grand jury subpoenas, appearing with witnesses at investigative interviews, and defending clients at trial similar administrative hearings. Our attorneys are uniquely qualified from their years of service with the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, military experience and state and federal prosecutorial experience to assist with matters of this nature.
