Antitrust

Kenny Nachwalter, P.A. has a national reputation for excellence in antitrust law. In a 2010 survey by U.S. News & World Report, the firm received a national tier "1" ranking. The survey results included every Fortune 100 company and 587 of the Fortune 1000 companies. The firm's antitrust practice has received similar tier "1" rankings in other surveys such as Chambers, and the firm's three senior active antitrust lawyers have been regularly recognized as SuperLawyers by their peers.

Although the firm's antitrust practice includes defense work in federal and state courts and before government agencies, most of our antitrust practice is on the plaintiff's side in which we represent clients with problems with competitors or suppliers. We have represented clients in competitor cases in such industries as:

  • Airline
  • Automobile
  • Dairy
  • Grocery
  • Insurance
  • Real estate
  • Rental car
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Publishing
  • Telecommunications
  • Transportation
  • Shipping industries

Supplier cases involve domestic conspiracies and international cartels. We have been involved in the civil prosecution of most cartel cases exposed by the enhanced incentives in the United States Department of Justice's Corporate Amnesty Program in the mid–1990s. We have likewise represented clients in most of the antitrust cases filed against pharmaceutical companies for restraining generic drug entry since passage of the Hatch-Waxman Act in 1984.

The firm does not have a plaintiff's class action antitrust practice. Rather, we typically represent the specific client interests of large public and private corporations, privately-held companies and individual entrepreneurs in plaintiff's antitrust cases.

The firm has considerable trial experience and has tried a number of antitrust cases, which is one of several things that separates the firm from others.

Because of our expertise in antitrust, the firm’s lawyers have taught antitrust law, served as special assistant attorneys general prosecuting or advising several States, and have published articles on antitrust law.
