We advise clients on potential mergers, handle premerger filings and second requests and represent clients in clearance negotiations with the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. We work closely with foreign counsel on regulatory clearances for international deals.
We represent clients in grand jury and other government investigations, and we defend clients charged with civil or criminal violations of the antitrust laws.
