We assist our clients in understanding and complying with federal and state antitrust laws and regulations, including the Sherman Act, FTC Act and New Jersey Antitrust Act.
In doing so, we help our clients evaluate potential collaborations and joint ventures which enhance rather than restrict competition; participation in and the recognized role of trade associations; guidance involving price policies; distribution methods, including primary areas of responsibility and territorial allocation strategies; advertising policies, including internet advertising; resale price maintenance policies; refusals to deal and group boycotts; product and service tying arrangements; licensing agreements, including those involving the use and restriction of intellectual property; franchise structures; dealer programs and termination policies; and the effect of potential mergers and acquisitions on market share and monopoly considerations. We also represent our clients during inquiries by regulatory competition agencies and in litigated disputes.
