Jarod Bona focuses on antitrust, appellate, business litigation, real-estate litigation and challenges to government conduct. You can follow him on his blog at www.TheAntitrustAttorney.com.
He graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School in 2001, and clerked for Judge James B. Loken on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit following graduation. He practiced law at DLA Piper and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher for a dozen years before starting his own law firm in March 2014.
Antitrust: Mr. Bona represents global clients in a wide variety of antitrust matters, including issues arising from intellectual property disputes or settlements, agreements among competitors, loyalty discount and other exclusionary conduct issues, merger and acquisition transactions, resale-price maintenance programs, Noerr-Pennington issues, state-action immunity issues, labor-exemption issues, Robinson-Patman Act issues and government investigations. Mr. Bona has also developed a global antitrust and competition policy for an international trade association, and advises standard-setting organizations on antitrust issues.
Appeals: Mr. Bona has argued appeals in both state and federal courts, and has filed many amicus briefs, including two recent amicus briefs with the United States Supreme Court in antitrust cases.
Business Litigation: Mr. Bona has experience with many types of disputes that can arise for businesses, including, for example, claims involving trade secrets, breach of contract, fraud and misrepresentation, tortious interference, malicious prosecution, RICO, unfair and deceptive trade practices, intellectual property, securities, procurement disputes and other state and federal claims.
Real-Estate Litigation: Mr. Bona can help you resolve your real-estate disputes. He is a skilled-litigator with experience with a variety of real-estate issues. He is also a real-estate investor, so understands the perspectives of his real-estate clients.
Challenges to Government Conduct: Many of Mr. Bona’s cases, at both the trial and appellate level, involve challenges to government conduct in some form or another. He is personally trying to move the direction of law—through both cases and public advocacy—to allow businesses greater opportunity to utilize the antitrust laws against state and local governments when the government itself is harming competition.
