Antitrust and Trade Regulation
Kerr Russell’s depth of experience in antitrust and trade regulation law spans more than 50 years. Our attorneys provide counseling, business planning, and litigation services to a broad range of clients facing private or governmental claims.
The firm’s trial experience includes all aspects of civil and criminal antitrust litigation, Federal Trade Commission enforcement actions and criminal antitrust matters. We routinely represent clients in federal and state civil antitrust cases, including class actions, grand jury investigations and Federal Trade Commission investigations.
Our attorneys assist when Hart-Scott-Rodino pre-merger notification requirements threaten to delay the merger and acquisition plans of corporate clients. We analyze the antitrust aspects of the proposed business transactions and navigate clients through the paperwork involved in filing reports with the Justice Department and Federal Trade Commission, to align with client timeframes.
We help clients establish antitrust compliance programs and procedures, and also counsel clients on the antitrust implications of many business transactions and issues, including distribution, dealer relations, and pricing.
