Cadwalader's Antitrust team advises clients and serves as counsel in connection with some of the most notable and complex antitrust issues, including the landmark antitrust case, U.S. v. Microsoft. With expertise in the full range of antitrust matters, including areas as diverse as monopolization, price-fixing, tying, group boycotts, exclusive dealing, resale price maintenance, bid-rigging, and price discrimination, our antitrust litigators regularly appear before trial and appellate courts throughout the country, as well as before the U.S. Supreme Court. They have argued complex civil and criminal antitrust cases, including major treble-damage actions, nationwide class actions, consolidated multidistrict litigation, and lawsuits initiated by the U.S. antitrust enforcement agencies and state attorneys general.
