Antitrust

Zuckert, Scoutt & Rasenberger's antitrust practice includes civil and criminal litigation in the federal courts, preventative counseling, counseling regarding mergers and acquisitions and representation of parties before the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission in connection with investigations and merger reviews.

We provide advice on antitrust issues to a broad range of business interests.  This has included joint ventures, mergers (including the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission review process), and other forms of cooperative dealings.  We have also instituted antitrust compliance programs for several corporations.  The firm provides ongoing antitrust advice to several trade associations.

Attorneys in our firm have defended individuals and corporations in antitrust criminal actions brought by the Department of Justice, have litigated private antitrust suits, and obtained business review letters from the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice.

We have represented air carriers and other parties in DOJ reviews of a number of the most significant proposed airline mergers and computer reservation system mergers in recent years. We have played and are playing a similar role in connection with several of the major railroad mergers, and mergers of household goods movers.
