Adam Hudes focuses his practice on representing litigants in antitrust and complex commercial disputes. Adam places a particular emphasis on defending market leading companies against challenges to their pricing, distribution, marketing, and strategic business practices. He is recognized as a Rising Star for Antitrust Litigation by Super Lawyers 2014.

Adam's representations have included some of the largest antitrust and unfair competition cases filed in recent years by private plaintiffs and the class action bar. These cases have addressed a variety of legal theories including price-fixing, monopolization, Robinson-Patman Act violations, market allocations, sham litigation, false advertising, Lanham Act violations, and other business torts. Most recently, Adam helped obtain summary judgment for Nestle USA in In re Chocolate Confectionery Antitrust Litigation, one of the largest multi-district antitrust litigation matters to date involving allegations of a conspiracy to fix the price of chocolate candy products. Adam has also represented companies in investigations and merger reviews conducted by the Federal Trade Commission, US Department of Justice, and state authorities.

In addition to his litigation work, Adam regularly counsels clients on marketing, distribution, resale pricing, brand protection, and other trade practice matters. He has spoken at numerous client retreats on antitrust compliance and distribution practices and has advised clients on the design and implementation of antitrust compliance programs. Adam has also authored a number of articles and analysis regarding antitrust law, distribution, and litigation practice.
