Our antitrust compliance investigation experience covers criminal and civil antitrust investigations of all kinds at the federal and state levels. It also includes investigations by European and Asian competition authorities, as well as internal investigations.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and/or state attorneys general have recently closed investigations without action in connection with clients we represented in the following industries:

  • Animal health products
  • Musical instruments
  • Printing supplies

We have also handled internal investigations in the United States and in Europe, as requested by companies in the following areas:

  • Oilfield services
  • Building products
  • Transportation

In addition to handling specific investigations for our clients, we routinely conduct audits covering the full range of antitrust issues in order to identify potential risks and recommend risk-reduction measures. Such audits can be calibrated from very targeted e-mail review, to more in-depth investigation of conduct most likely to lead to the greatest antitrust exposure (i.e., contacts with competitors).

As one example, we assisted a client in developing an audit of its trade association memberships and the level of antitrust compliance and sophistication of said associations. Based on the results of the audit, the client determined that it should eliminate nearly half of its association memberships and request other associations to enhance their antitrust compliance. The net result was both substantial annual cost savings with regard to association memberships and participation expenses and substantial reduction in the company's antitrust risk profile.
