When litigation is unavoidable, we aggressively represent our clients’ interests in all areas of complex antitrust litigation, including claims of monopolization, conspiracy, predatory pricing, price fixing, bid-rigging, price and promotional discrimination, distribution restrictions, intellectual property and data privacy, and group boycotts. We represent clients in grand jury inquiries, investigations, criminal proceedings, class actions, civil litigation and multidistrict federal litigation.
We also represent clients in complex commercial litigation involving business torts, such as unfair competition, inducement of breach of contract and interference with business opportunities. In recent years, we have aggressively represented agricultural cooperatives on a variety of antitrust and trade regulation matters. We have particular experience with advising cooperatives on the applicability and reach of the Capper-Volstead Act antitrust exemption. Also, we litigate complex contract claims, including disputes between bidders on government contracts.
Additionally, we represent clients in private antitrust and consumer protection matters involving false-advertising, trademark infringement and dilution, intellectual property and data privacy, including actions based on the Lanham Act and due to data breaches. We have represented clients in patent litigation, particularly generic pharmaceutical companies, in cases brought pursuant to the Hatch-Waxman Act.
