Antitrust Litigation

Latham’s antitrust litigators and first-chair trial lawyers focus exclusively on antitrust and competition cases. We regularly defeat and resolve the thorniest competition and trade-related claims brought against corporations and governments in venues throughout the world.

We defend clients facing the full spectrum of charges in private and public damages litigation, competitor actions, class actions, and administrative actions — from claims of monopolization to coordinated conduct, price discrimination, and unfair competition.

The team includes former prosecutors at the US Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, European Commission, UK Competition and Markets Authority and former clerks (référendaires) to judges of the European Union courts, who offer clients rare insight into the enforcement priorities of regulators and the courts’ decision-making processes. We frequently succeed in obtaining early dismissals of cases before they proceed to discovery. We also routinely dispose of cases at class certification or on a motion for summary judgment, saving clients the costs and disruption of trial. When trying the case is the right strategic decision, Latham is one of only a few firms to take cases brought by private plaintiffs or government regulators to trial — and win.
