Anti Trust and Unfair Competition Litigations typically involve significant sums and can have a profound impact on any company. A very specialised subject, Anti Trust Practice is one of the most important practice areas for Empire. Typically antitrust disputes may involve Private Anti Trust complaints or Federal Investigations into anti competitive practices.
The consequences for the disputes are huge and may involve damages claims, civil or criminal fines and penalties, consent decrees and even change in business models and business agreements. These decisions may have a significant impact of your business with long term financial damages.
On the other hand, you may also need to be involved in this filed due to potential anti competitive practices of your competing business which may be hurting your business. This situation requires close cooperation with the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission to ensure that the facts submitted by you are evaluated in detail.
A significant part of this subject also involves ensuring that your business practices are compliant with competition law provisions and you do not fall foul of any potential litigation. Regular evaluation of your compliances can ensure that you are not dragged into potentially expensive litigation and investigation.
Empire can provide you with specialised guidance to ensure that your business is compliant with Anti Trust provisions and also in situations of competition law litigation.
