Since the firm’s inception, Carrington Coleman lawyers have been active in all aspects of antitrust practice and have held leadership positions in the antitrust bar at the local, state, and national levels. Our experience includes both counseling and litigation in cases brought under the various federal and Texas antitrust laws, as well as other statutory and common law regimes for regulating trade and competition.
Our antitrust litigation practice covers claims of vertical and horizontal conspiracies and restraints, price fixing and discrimination, market division, monopolization, and other restraints of trade. We are well-versed in the Noerr-Pennington and State Action doctrines and other defenses, exemptions, and immunities that may be available to those charged with anticompetitive conduct.
Of course, while we actively pursue and defend litigation in the antitrust arena, often the best service we can provide to our clients is counseling them before questions mature into antitrust problems. Our counseling practice extends to the range of antitrust issues to minimize exposure under federal and state law.
