Clearing the Way for Growth
Morgan Lewis’s Antitrust Practice is one of the largest and most diversified in the world. Our Antitrust Practice is distinguished by its substantial scope and depth, our base of knowledge and experience, and our international capability. We provide the full spectrum of antitrust services, from preventive counseling to advice on complex issues to defense of "bet the company" litigation.
In our client representations, we have tackled the most difficult antitrust problems in all sectors of the global economy. For example, we have handled:
- Controversial mergers implicating regulatory systems of dozens of countries
- Novel licensing questions
- Complex defenses of corporations subject to multiple cartel investigations
- Sensitive internal and government investigations
- Complicated litigation brought by thousands of plaintiffs in dozens of jurisdictions across the United States
Strength in the Caliber of Our Lawyers
Regardless of the particular issue presented, we believe our strength comes from the caliber of our lawyers, who bring diverse backgrounds in antitrust and litigation to our team.
Many of our lawyers have held senior positions with U.S. antitrust enforcement agencies, including assistant attorney general in charge of the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, deputy director of the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC's) Bureau of Competition, and director of the FTC's Office of Policy and Evaluation. Our team also includes lawyers who have gained vast experience handling a wide range of client problems and litigation issues through years of hands-on law firm practice.
Worldwide Integrated Team
Morgan Lewis antitrust lawyers work as one worldwide integrated team, irrespective of office location, and are particularly experienced in addressing complex multijurisdictional issues. In addition, in many of our representations, we provide a multidisciplinary perspective to client problems. By working closely with lawyers in other Morgan Lewis practices, we are able to draw on the knowledge and experience of corporate, regulatory, tax, and labor lawyers, depending on the situation presented.
