Year after year, Crowell & Moring is recognized as a top antitrust and competition practice by legal and industry journals. We were recognized as "highly recommended" in Global Competition Review's (GCR) 20th edition of the "GCR 100: The World's Leading Competition Law and Economics Practices." Our Washington, D.C., and Brussels-based groups have been listed among the leading practices in both Chambers USA and Chambers Global, where clients describe our lawyers as "highly impressive" and possessing "an exceptional ability to communicate complex, technical issues to the layman." 

Our practice covers the full range of substantive antitrust and trade regulations, including:

  • Defense of civil litigation and government investigations
  • Pursuit of damages in recovery actions through both opt-out litigation and claims management
  • Criminal grand jury investigations and trials
  • Full-service merger and acquisition representation
  • Pragmatic counseling to manage antitrust risks, including conducting audits and sophisticated compliance training
  • Trade association representation

Our deep bench of trial lawyers routinely represents industry-leading companies in defense of antitrust and competition claims, and in pursuit of affirmative recoveries when our clients have been victims of price-fixing conspiracies. Recent matters include E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. v. Kolon Industries, Inc., in which, after obtaining a $919.9 million verdict against Kolon for the theft of KEVLAR® technology, our antitrust team defeated Kolon's antitrust counterclaims on a motion for summary judgment. We have also obtained multimillion dollar recoveries for clients like AT&T, Motorola, and others.

Our transactions practice has handled some of the largest and most complex mergers and acquisitions in recent history, including AT&T's $108.7 billion acquisition of Time Warner Inc., its $48 billion acquisition of DIRECTV, and United Technologies' $135 billion acquisition of The Raytheon Company and its $30 billion acquisition of Rockwell Collins. Additionally, we regularly counsel high-profile clients on the full complement of antitrust issues, serving as a trusted adviser with a deep understanding of our clients' business drivers and the industries in which they compete.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in private practice, as well as within governmental antitrust and competition agencies. Our team members have held key positions of responsibility at agencies before which we regularly appear on behalf of clients, including the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission in the United States, and the Office of Fair Trading and the Competition Commission in the United Kingdom. We know firsthand the political and legislative forces that drive regulatory and law enforcement agencies.

Our depth of substantive experience, along with our understanding of how the regulatory agencies work and our commitment to partnering with clients to achieve their business results, explain why Crowell & Moring's antitrust and competition practice is one of the most highly respected practices in the United States and around the world.
