Antitrust Counseling and Compliance
Thought Leadership


Our team has broad and practical experience in a variety of antitrust and competition advisory areas globally. This includes competition issues in the digital era, licensing technology, distribution network, R&D joint ventures or joint production/purchase/sale, foreclosure issues, pricing and rebates policy, compliance and audit and market power. Our lawyers are developing cutting-edge advice across business sectors, guiding companies with their strategic business decisions.

Because the best way to solve problems is to prevent them in the first place, Sheppard Mullin specializes in formulating and implementing effective antitrust compliance programs. We offer a two hour compliance program to clients at no charge, as well as other more in-depth programs where appropriate. We advise clients about whether specific proposals or conduct are consistent with the antitrust laws. We can also "audit" a company's policies and procedures to be certain they comply with antitrust laws, as well as recommend solutions when and where they are needed. State laws, particularly those in California, often have unique interpretations that companies should know. Our antitrust compliance programs are company specific and cover both state and federal laws.
