In a study of business owners, competition ranked among the top stressors – surpassing pricing, technology and workforce management. It’s hard enough to secure market share on a level playing field; if your business becomes the victim of unfair and illegal tactics by a dominant competitor, legal action may be necessary.
Stueve Siegel Hanson has pursued and defended a broad variety of state and federal antitrust lawsuits nationwide. We advocate for our business clients on a broad range of antitrust law claims:
- Price fixing
- Conspiracy to restrain trade
- Attempts to boycott
- Tying arrangements
- Franchise, licensing and intellectual property claims involving antitrust issues
Our work has included both individual and class-action cases for clients in a wide variety of industries, from Formula 1 racing to groceries. In one matter, we represented a physician-owned spine and specialty acute care hospital that claimed the region’s dominant health care systems conspired among themselves to prevent it from obtaining in-network provider contracts. After the trial court ruled that our client had a potential damages case of more than $140 million, the case settled with all 11 defendants.
Unlike most law firms, which bill for antitrust litigation work on an hourly basis, Stueve Siegel Hanson takes these cases on an alternative fee or contingency arrangement. What this means for you: Our success depends on your success, so we are incentivized to resolve antitrust issues efficiently and cost-effectively.
