Antitrust

We litigate many cases brought under state and federal antitrust laws and broader commercial claims involving antitrust issues.

Our experience includes:

  • Representing St. Peter's Hospital as counsel of record in a large antitrust class action commenced by nurses who alleged conspiratorial conduct among local hospitals in respect to wages. Four local hospitals were also sued in this case, all employing national law firms to defend them. The case was settled for nuisance value after a defendant's victory on plaintiffs' motion for class certification.

In addition, we have defended and prosecuted antitrust claims, including the following:

  • Defense of allegations that a large supermarket competitor was acquiring or tying up available sites for development as a means of excluding competitors

  • Defense of antitrust issues in connection with a retail sales dealer termination case

  • Defense of a price-fixing class action suit brought against an organization of realtors

  • Prosecution of a price-fixing claim on behalf of a gasoline retail chain
