Crowell & Moring's antitrust professionals regularly counsel high-profile clients on antitrust compliance issues, not only in conjunction with ongoing litigation or transactional work, but as a long-term relationship, collaborating with our clients on the day-to-day running of their businesses.

Our philosophy is grounded in business reality. We help our clients be responsive to their stakeholders and accomplish their business goals while minimizing — and managing — antitrust risk. We focus on quick turnaround and sophisticated advice grounded in the most up-to-date knowledge of the law, no matter how quickly it changes.

Crowell & Moring lawyers have particular knowledge in the following counseling "hot topics," and bring decades of experience in these areas to bear on their clients' daily business decisions:

  • Distribution relationships, including distributor and dealer agreement formation and enforcement, "gray market" and transshipment issues, channel management, distributor terminations, and distributor communications
  • Vertical pricing, including resale prices, price advertising, and price discrimination
  • "Dominant firm" conduct issues, including bundling and other pricing strategies, tying, discounting strategies, and aftermarket issues
  • Horizontal conduct issues, including competitor contacts and collaborations, participation in trade associations, and other industry collaborations
  • Employee antitrust training, and internal compliance audits and assessment
