Antitrust and Trade Regulation

Robins Kaplan’s Antitrust and Trade Regulation Group is one of the nation’s premier antitrust practices. Our team of legal professionals hails from diverse backgrounds, including former trial attorneys from the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, the former Co-Chair of the antitrust practice of a nationally recognized AmLaw 100 firm, two former U.S. Attorneys, and the current vice-president of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.

We are one of the few national practices to have obtained landmark successes on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants in major antitrust litigation and at trial, including in several of the most significant antitrust cases ever litigated. With nearly $10 billion in recoveries for antitrust plaintiffs and a long history of successfully defending Fortune 100 companies in antitrust disputes, Robins Kaplan regularly ranks as one of the top firms in the United States for antitrust litigation.
