Antitrust and Unfair Competition

Businesses today face a constant threat of litigation from private parties or government regulators invoking the antitrust, unfair competition, and trade regulation laws. The failure of businesses to take quick action to remedy unfair competition can have a devastating impact on a business through loss of key customers and employees, declining sales and loss of market share.

Our attorneys have significant experience in litigating virtually all aspects of antitrust, unfair competition, and trade regulation claims under California and federal law.

Stradling also provides preventative counseling to clients whose business activities, such as trade association activities, information sharing, and licensing issues, bring them together with competitors.

We have experience applying antitrust and unfair competition laws to clients in the healthcare field, such as physicians, hospital groups, and joint ventures, and purchasing agreements among healthcare providers.

In addition, our intellectual property and life sciences expertise enables us to develop antitrust counseling and compliance programs tailored to these specific fields.
