Creative and effective solutions to competition law issues.
Our breadth of antitrust experience includes not only civil and criminal litigation but also counseling clients on the transactional implications of competition laws. We can act as a courtroom advocate, negotiator working with antitrust enforcement agencies, counselor on the potential risks of business transactions and an internal auditor of antitrust compliance. With experienced antitrust lawyers in many of our U.S. offices, we represent clients in antitrust matters throughout the country. We also are able to represent antitrust clients around the world through our close relationships with competition lawyers in many different countries outside the United States.
Locke Lord represents a diverse group of international and domestic companies in antitrust matters — from Fortune 100 corporations to small startups. Our antitrust lawyers also represent individuals, partnerships, joint ventures and trade associations in a wide variety of antitrust and competition issues.
We are ranked among the top law firms in Texas for Antitrust Law by Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business, which notes that our antitrust lawyers are “adept at managing complex disputes related to price fixing, market manipulation and monopolization.” According to one client interviewed by Chambers, “Locke Lord is a quality law firm that does an excellent job,” with another client describing us as “excellent and helpful lawyers.”
Locke Lord is able to provide tailored antitrust advice within the framework of a firm that has significant, yet cost-effective resources to assist clients. Our philosophy is that the client's interests are paramount. As observed by one client interviewed by Chambers, the Firm's antitrust team is “friendly and willing to shape its work product around what the client wants.”
Among the many achievements we have obtained for our clients, Locke Lord's Antitrust Practice Group has been involved in three antitrust cases with significant issues that were decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in the past five years. This is notable because the Supreme Court rarely considers more than one antitrust case in any one year. These accomplishments and the outstanding legal services we provide have contributed to the many prestigious rankings for our practice group and its members.
