Krieg DeVault takes a practical, common-sense perspective on antitrust law that helps our clients avoid pit falls, respond to regulatory inquiries with confidence, and achieve their business goals. Rather than take a narrow focus, we advise clients on the antitrust implications of all aspects of their business decisions involving acquisitions, contracts and sales agreements, distribution arrangements, marketing strategies, and pricing. Our antitrust lawyers help guide transactional or strategic initiatives from the start to anticipate and avert antitrust problems and facilitate Hart-Scott-Rodino regulatory clearance. We proactively advise on such complex issues as business combinations in the health care sector and the regulatory and antitrust implications of patent or trademark ownership. If antitrust controversies do arise, we represent clients in federal and state court as plaintiffs and defendants, and respond effectively to administrative inquiries and hearings before federal and state antitrust enforcement agencies.
