Antitrust & Unfair Competition
Antitrust & Unfair Competition practice has become significantly more complex and multi-jurisdictional in recent years. Pierce Burns LLP represents both claimants and defendants in antitrust and unfair competition disputes. Our lawyers have the experience and expertise to handle any dispute for any company.
We defend companies in civil antitrust lawsuits. We represent plaintiffs in both individual and class actions, often with the assistance of third-party litigation funding. When necessary, we team with top-tier larger firms that have offices throughout the world, including commercial centers that are considered hotbeds of antitrust and competition claims, such as New York, Washington DC, London, and Brussels. As a result, we’re able to create a comprehensive global strategy to address antitrust issues at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.
We also represent companies facing regulatory investigations that often lead to multiple civil actions and substantial financial penalties. Our attorneys have handled investigations for the world’s largest financial institutions and corporations and know how to deal with the relevant regulatory authorities both in the United States and abroad.
Pierce Burns LLP is also the firm of choice to handle defense or plaintiff-side unfair competition litigation. Our attorneys have tried cutting-edge, high-profile cases in this field for some of the world’s most well-known corporations, including Overstock.com. Unfair competition litigation demands a finely-tuned understanding of your business as well as a comprehensive knowledge of this challenging field of substantive law.
