Burr & Forman has extensive experience in antitrust litigation and counseling.
We represent both corporations and individuals in federal and state antitrust matters, including grand jury investigations, trials and appeals in federal and state courts, including the United States Supreme Court, and Federal Trade Commission proceedings. Burr has represented both defendants and plaintiffs in private treble damage litigation, including defense of one of the first nationwide antitrust class actions that was tried to conclusion. Our attorneys have also been involved in both pricing and distribution actions and in dealership and agency termination lawsuits throughout the country.
In addition to litigation matters and agency proceedings, Burr regularly counsels clients on various trade and antitrust issues related to the sale of our client’s products and services, including advising on pricing and distribution matters, trade association activities, advertising, and other antitrust compliance issues. Our firm also routinely advises clients on competition matters in the merger setting and has prepared numerous Hart-Scott-Rodino premerger notification filings in conjunction with these acquisitions.
