We have represented consumers and small businesses in a diverse array of antitrust matters and have recovered tens of millions of dollars. Antitrust laws are designed to promote and protect competition and fairness in the marketplace. When these laws are violated, legal action is often required to enforce the laws and maintain fair competition for the benefit of consumers and businesses.
Our antitrust cases often involve:
- Market allocation agreements
- Anti-competitive practices
We currently represent certain small businesses in an antitrust matter filed against Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. for alleged anticompetitive actions and antitrust violations related to a monopoly that Valeant acquired over the market for certain specialty contact lens materials. Additionally, we have represented consumers in an antitrust matter wherein compensation was sought from propane tank manufacturers for allegedly conspiring to reduce the fill levels of their tanks and thereby costing consumers millions of dollars. Additionally, our founding attorney, Stuart M. Paynter, started his career representing Microsoft in the famous antitrust case brought against Microsoft by the United States Department of Justice, as well as in numerous individual cases against Microsoft brought by private consumers.
