Cooper & Kirk has the expertise and the depth of experience to vindicate the rights of our clients who have been harmed by collusive efforts to squelch competition and by unlawful exertions of monopoly power, and to counsel clients seeking to navigate the often confusing federal and state competition laws. Our lawyers have represented both individuals and State governments in complex antitrust matters and have advised private clients on a variety of antitrust and competition matters. We are part of the leadership team that has obtained the landmark class action settlement of the claims asserted under Section 1 against the Blue Cross Blue Shield network and are actively involved in the effort to restore competition to the Internet. We have provided in-depth analysis of the potential antitrust consequences of mergers, long term purchase contracts, and other transactions. We have even conducted full-scale briefing and oral argument before retired federal judges to aid clients in assessing the strength of potential claims and defenses in litigation.
