Our work focuses on finding solutions to the myriad antitrust and competition issues confronting the world’s leading technology and life sciences companies.

Competition and antitrust laws around the world are rapidly evolving. Authorities are increasingly using a wide range of powers to investigate mergers, markets, cartels and contractual arrangements between competitors, suppliers and distributors, as well as alleged abuses of dominant market positions. As more regulatory regimes become established and as investigative powers and penalties become more severe, the risk of falling afoul of these complex laws has never been more acute.

We are nationally ranked leaders in the field, and companies can depend on our team’s knowledge of the latest and most important developments in antitrust and competition law.
