Antitrust and Trade Regulation

GKG Law represents its clients in civil and criminal antitrust litigation, antitrust audits and grand jury investigations. We regularly appear on behalf of our clients before the United States Department of Justice Antitrust Division, as well as the Federal Trade Commission Bureaus of Competition and Consumer Protection. In addition, our antitrust lawyers handle white-collar criminal grand jury investigations that do not involve antitrust matters.

We provide advice and prepare antitrust compliance (Hart-Scott-Rodino) filings for clients involved in mergers and acquisitions. In this capacity, we work closely with the firm's corporate and tax attorneys, and with our clients’ senior management, in order to help assure that antitrust exposure is minimized or eliminated.

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in civil antitrust litigation and investigations in a wide variety of industries. In addition, we conduct antitrust audits for for-profit and not-for-profit companies, design risk-specific antitrust compliance programs and present seminars to top management and marketing and sales personnel.  Also, we advise clients on the antitrust and trade regulation aspects and ramifications of commercial pricing and bidding policies and dealings with competitors.

We advise and represent clients who belong to industries under antitrust investigation and counsel trade association members on the antitrust aspects of their involvement with association meetings and related activities. Our antitrust attorneys frequently work closely with other GKG Law attorneys and clients involved in industries that are regulated by government agencies.

GKG Law’s Washington, D.C. location not only facilitates access to government decision-makers, but also better enables us to discern emerging enforcement trends and changing practices. Thus, we are able to expeditiously advise our clients of new developments. GKG Law's proximity to federal agencies enforcing the antitrust laws also allows us to obtain both formal and informal opinions on activities our clients are contemplating, as well as to respond quickly and effectively to government investigations.
