Harter Secrest & Emery’s attorneys lead clients through oftentimes complex and high stakes antitrust and competition matters, including through business counseling, and representation in government investigations and private antitrust litigation.
We serve organizational clients of all sizes, and individual clients, in a wide range of industries.
Our antitrust team includes David A. Wier, who guided the Eastman Kodak Company through some of the country’s most prominent antitrust matters as its chief antitrust counsel. Other team members have antitrust litigation, government investigation, and counseling experience from representing HSE clients, and from past work in government positions and at other leading law firms.
In particular, our team has significant experience advising clients on federal antitrust laws, including the Sherman Act, Clayton Act, and the Robinson-Patman Act, and New York State’s Donnelly Act. These matters have included competitor agreements, bid rigging, group boycotts, market divisions, price discrimination, price fixing, supply chains, and tying and bundling.
Notably, Harter Secrest & Emery knows both sides of antitrust disputes. The firm leads clients through the defense of antitrust disputes, but also prosecutes antitrust claims on behalf of injured companies and individuals. The firm relies on this broad experience to provide sophisticated advice to clients facing antitrust and competition issues.
