Montgomery McCracken’s Antitrust Practice encompasses the full breadth of issues that arise in criminal and civil antitrust litigation, with special talents in multidistrict and class action litigation.

We have played a leading role for clients in antitrust litigation throughout the country, since its representation of significant defendants in Eastern Railroad Presidents Conference v. Noerr Motor Co. and the Electrical Equipment cases in the 1960s. We represent clients as plaintiffs as well as defendants.

We counsel clients on antitrust issues in business transactions such as:

  • Government investigation responses
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Distribution arrangements
  • Licensing agreements
  • Sales and pricing policies
  • Healthcare

We maintain exceptional relations with the enforcement agencies in Washington and Philadelphia. We have achieved significant successes for our antitrust clients in settling difficult and potentially dangerous cases because of our reputation for quality and integrity in dealing with both opposing counsel and co-counsel. When litigation becomes necessary, we are committed and effective advocates.

Our Antitrust Practice seeks to develop partnering relationships with our clients, both long-term and short-term, to serve their needs and objectives most effectively.
