The Clayton Act is a civil statute prohibiting mergers or acquisitions that increase the likelihood of increased prices through monopoly in a particular trade, and most states have antitrust laws very similar to those that are present on the federal level. Under the Clayton Act, a state attorney general may sue a company on behalf of the residents of his or her state, and groups of consumers frequently bring lawsuits on their own.
While criminal prosecution under the Sherman Act remains the Antitrust Division's first priority, civil antitrust actions are no less extensive and intrusive, and the penalties that can result are no less harsh. Our antitrust team is comprised of seasoned litigators who will ensure that your case receives the attention it deserves.
If convicted, a corporation or individual may be ordered to make restitution for all claimed overcharges, and private parties alleging Bid-Rigging and Price-Fixing conspiracies may also sue for up to three times the amount of damages, in addition to court costs and attorneys' fees (and only Remedial Fines and Damages are Tax-Deductible).
