Antitrust, Competition & Product Distribution

Any business can face antitrust issues, whether in the form of government enforcement actions or private claims. Axley Antitrust Attorneys have the experience and knowledge to prosecute or defend claims, or provide advice about antitrust laws and other anti-competitive and business tort legislation.

Our expertise includes numerous federal statutory schemes which may impact competitive practices, including:
  • The Sherman Act
  • The Clayton Act
  • The Robinson-Patman Act
  • HSR
  • RICO

We also have substantial experience with Wisconsin’s Trusts and Monopolies legislation, which parallels the federal acts, and Wisconsin’s unique and complex Fair Dealership Law.

Axley attorneys not only advise our business and association clients about compliance with regulations and laws, we also provide guidance about structuring transactions to avoid challenges. Whether through pre-emptive negotiations with the Department of Justice or long-range efforts to influence legislation to assert Noerr-Pennington immunity, Axley’s attorneys can help steer clients through the maze of business regulations so clients can concentrate on their business, not on antitrust problems.
