Antitrust and Unfair Competition
Our approach to antitrust matters is decidedly different from other firms because we commonly represent clients – multi-national corporations, small businesses and consumers – on either side of the docket. We are selective in the litigation we pursue and consistently position that litigation for success in the courtroom. We have found this approach yields the best results for our clients, whether at the settlement table or at trial. We carefully consider the objectives and economic realities of each client, looking for the best way to achieve an outcome that meets those needs.
The experience and track record of Zelle attorneys in antitrust is recognized in courts across the nation every day. We have recovered billions of dollars for our clients who are plaintiffs, and we have successfully mitigated other clients’ most significant exposures. We have substantial experience not just settling antitrust matters, but trying them. Martindale-Hubbell consistently ranks Zelle as one of the most active antitrust firms in the United States. Our lawyers are often named to lead counsel positions in class action and multi-district matters, but we are also highly effective in representing antitrust defendants and opt-out plaintiffs.
Zelle recognizes that many antitrust matters are increasingly international in scope. We routinely work with clients and foreign counsel in the United Kingdom, European Union, Canada and China to coordinate and fully protect our clients’ legal and business interests in a global context.
Because of the breadth and depth of our litigation experience, clients often call on us in counseling situations – including consultation on antitrust compliance programs, mergers and acquisitions, and the formation of joint ventures.
We invite you to review case studies relevant to our antitrust practice.
