Antitrust Origins & Consequences
Historically, antitrust laws came into existence in order to preserve competition in various industries and to prevent collusion on prices. The goal was to ensure that consumers would only pay market prices determined by competition rather than prices inflated through anti-competitive agreements and conduct. The consequences for antitrust violations are severe and the government vigorously prosecutes antitrust violations. Anyone accused of such a crime will need counsel from a knowledgeable attorney.
Achieving Optimal Outcomes Through Alternative Resolution
Convictions for criminal antitrust crimes may ultimately lead to steep fines and significant prison sentences. The Baltimore antitrust defense attorneys at Nathans & Ripke LLP have the negotiation experience to pursue alternative resolutions in antitrust criminal investigations. By working closely and proactively with clients we may be able to avoid criminal charges, obtain leniency through the Department of Justice Division's Leniency Program, or otherwise help achieve optimum outcomes.
