Protecting Your Company From Unlawful Trade Practices

For more than a century, antitrust legislation has protected businesses and consumers from illegal business practices that suppress competition and reduce economic freedom. Unfortunately, corporations that dominate the marketplace still exhibit anti-competitive behavior. Even in Silicon Valley, we've seen "robber baron" tactics drive down prices for components and wages for workers.

If your business or professional career has suffered due to collusion, price fixing, territorial restrictions, refusals to deal or any other illegal, anti-competitive action that violates your economic rights, Fergus, A Law Office, can help. With more than 35 years of complex civil litigation experience, I have the knowledge and skill necessary to assert your rights to injunctive relief and monetary damages.

The Knowledge, Skill And Resources You Need

Restraint of trade cases are very often David versus Goliath endeavors, where plaintiffs easily find themselves overmatched. At Fergus, A Law Office, however, I am an attorney who works diligently to negate that perceived advantage. With my knowledge, skill, resources and experience, I can help level the playing field for small to midsized companies that must challenge industry giants with seemingly endless legal resources.

Restraint of trade cases often turn on evidence of collusion or monopolistic behavior and damage gleaned from the relevant antitrust market. In my trial practice, I utilize cutting-edge litigation technology that allows me to process vast amounts of documentary evidence as efficiently as possible. By working with experts in analyzing transactional data and measuring market concentration, together we can start to form a clear picture of illegal conduct and economic harm.

Restraint Of Trade Against American And Foreign Corporations

The Sherman Antitrust Act allows the U.S. government to pursue criminal charges and private citizens to seek civil remedies against persons and entities that unreasonably restrict competition. It doesn't matter whether the defendants are American or foreign entities — if their actions affect interstate commerce in the U.S., they are potential defendants.

It is fundamental to a restraint of trade claim to identify the relevant market being affected by the defendant's activities. The antitrust laws prohibit agreements or conspiracies to limit competition in relevant markets that cause damage or monopolistic behavior.
