American capitalism is built on the ideal of free trade and competition. The US has laws preventing companies from monopolizing and working together to take unfair advantage of consumers through price gouging and collusion. Some companies care more about their profits than they do the antitrust laws of the United States, which can economically harm innocent consumers and business owners.
Antitrust violations, such as price-fixing, market allocation agreements, monopolistic schemes and other violations of antitrust law, result in higher prices and less choice for consumers and businesses. Our antitrust legal team takes an innovative and aggressive approach to fighting anticompetitive business practices throughout the country.
NP understands and appreciates the legal and economic issues affecting a wide-range of markets, allowing us to effectively prosecute anti-competitive practices in violation of both federal and state antitrust and unfair competition laws.
NP represented more than 100 merchants, including major airlines, online travel companies, hotel and resort chains, energy conglomerates, and national retailers, against credit card companies and banks over merchant rules alleged to violate antitrust laws. We confidentially resolved the claims of every one of these clients.
We currently represent three major automobile dealership groups and their 300-plus nationwide individual dealerships in the largest automotive parts antitrust lawsuit in U.S. history.
