Antitrust is a general term for the collection of laws that seek to prevent unlawful mergers and anti-competitive business practices. The primarily legal work in the field is performed by regulatory entities through maintenance of market competition, seeking that consumers have a substantive choice between products and vendors. However, in some cases, private party actions may be brought, particularly under state Unfair, Deceptive and Abusive Practices (UDAP) laws. At IBL, we aid our clients in navigating competition concerns, which often accompany organic growth, mergers, or acquisitions, under U.S. (federal).
