About

Provided by Calfee, Halter & Griswold LLP

Calfee’s Antitrust and Competition attorneys advise clients on issues affecting operations such as pricing and distribution, employee education and compliance, mergers and acquisitions, and antitrust litigation. 

We represent public and private companies on antitrust matters before the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, and in state and federal courts in complex civil and criminal litigation.

We provide counseling and litigation services in the areas of competitor and customer relations, pricing policies, dealer relations, Hart-Scott-Rodino compliance, joint venture/acquisition analysis, advertising, and franchising. Calfee designs antitrust compliance programs that will assist its clients in meeting the standards of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and thus potentially serve as a mitigating factor in criminal sentencing.
