Antitrust & Competition

Extensive Antitrust Experience

Our antitrust team is experienced in all facets of antitrust review, including Hart-Scott-Rodino filings, voluntary information requests and civil investigative demands, “second requests,” depositions and investigational hearings, and remedies to resolve competitive concerns while preserving the business benefits of a transaction.

We advise clients on antitrust considerations arising out of information exchanges connected with mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, such as due diligence, pre-merger integration planning and post-transaction information sharing. We also represent clients in investigations and litigation involving price fixing, bid rigging, group boycotts, monopolization, tying and claims brought under state unfair competition statues.

Our experience spans key economic sectors that form the backbone of the global economy, including agriculture, chemicals, construction, consumer goods, electric power, financial services, healthcare, oil and gas, renewables and technology. A diverse range of companies — including Alinda Capital Partners, Apache Corporation, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), Duke Energy, Equinor, Great Plains Energy, Lufkin Industries and Phillips 66 — rely on us for our antitrust experience and knowledge.
