Legal Counseling and Compliance

As Benjamin Franklin counseled, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Robins Kaplan’s antitrust professionals offer practical cost effective solutions to help our clients grow and innovate their business while minimizing their antitrust risk – or avoiding it altogether. We provide our clients with sensible advice in evaluating the antitrust risks associated with proposed competitor collaborations, horizontal and vertical restraints, and other business conduct.  We do so by understanding the business strategies of our clients and becoming strategic partners with them. 

Thus, given the potentially crippling costs of an antitrust enforcement action and follow-on lawsuits, and the relatively small expense of consultation and/or implementing a compliance program, the choice should be clear. We offer each client a full range of counseling to our clients, including but not limited to:

  • Horizontal conduct issues, including competitor contacts and collaborations
  • Vertical pricing arrangements, including resale price maintenance, price advertising, and price discrimination
  • Refusals to deal
  • Joint ventures
  • Licensing and contractual restraints
  • Intellectual Property issues, including but not limited to: Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (“REMS”), settlement and licensing agreements, joint ventures, and acquisitions
  • Employee training, and compliance programs specifically tailored to meet our clients’ unique business needs and challenges
