Antitrust Law is law that promotes or maintains market competition by regulating anti-competitive behavior by businesses. The United States has enacted several laws to try to combat this anti-competitive behavior:
- The Sherman Act, which prohibits conspiracies and monopolization
- The Clayton Act which, prohibits certain mergers or acquisitions of stock or assets
- Sections of the Robinson-Patman Act, which prohibits discriminatory pricing
- Sections of the Wilson Tariff Act, which prohibits price-fixing of US imports
Violations of these federal antitrust laws, as well as state antitrust laws, can range from price fixing agreements among competitors to intricate plans that affect relationships between different levels of the market. Consumer Protection is an overriding theme of these laws which prohibit companies’ possible exploitations.
As a business, you might find yourself in situations where you need to enforce antitrust laws against a competitor; or defend allegations of antitrust laws against your own company. In enforcement actions, companies benefit from holding competitors responsible and stopping anti-competitive behavior that lessens your companies bottom line. In defense of actions, you need a firm that is aggressive and knowledgeable regarding what conduct companies can engage in that are ultra-competitive despite a claim that may facially appear to be anti-competitive. Whether you find your company faced with either side of these complex issues, the Oliver Law Group can be your experienced partner in navigating antitrust litigation to a successful conclusion.
