Antitrust and trade lawyers have experience with regulations governing what businesses can and cannot do in attempting to gain a competitive edge. Antitrust laws prohibit one company from controlling or monopolizing the market for goods or services.

Antitrust and trade attorneys can defend you against these claims, or provide support if you are the victim of unfair competition.
