Antitrust litigation may involve a wide variety of circumstances. While larger law firms are frequently involved in the antitrust aspects of large mergers and acquisitions, smaller firms may represent plaintiffs who have been the victims of anti-competitive behavior. Such cases may involve the following:
- Group boycotts: a group boycott involves an agreement not to sell a deal with a particular customer, distributor, or even another competitor. In the context of the health care industry, hospitals may abuse processes like peer review and credentialing to illegally boycott a competing provider.
- Price fixing: two or more firms in the same industry cannot, as a group, set minimum prices for their services or agree not to compete against one another in certain markets.
Individual competitors can also pursue claims under the Sherman Act and other state and federal antitrust laws if their business has suffered due to monopolistic or exclusionary conduct.
