Practice/Industry Group Overview

Cadwalader's antitrust leaders are hailed as "incredibly accomplished and bright" and provide "U.S. and international antitrust advice to major corporations on bet-the-company matters"  - Chambers USA

Cadwalader's Antitrust team consists of market-leading practitioners who represent clients ranging from some of the world's most prominent corporations to venture-capital-backed start-ups in diverse industries, including software, entertainment, food and beverages, automobiles, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, surface and air transportation, telecommunications, energy, insurance, and retail, regarding the full range of antitrust matters.

Our attorneys have significant expertise with both domestic and international antitrust issues, including mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures, and regularly appear before the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the European Commission (EC) and other international competition authorities, as well as a wide variety of trial and appellate courts.

In addition to our U.S. capabilities, through our presence in Brussels, we offer counsel on EU competition law across a wide range of competition law disciplines, including matters involving merger clearances, cartel defense, state aid, and abuse of dominance.

The Antitrust team includes numerous high-level former government officials, including a former Assistant Attorney General of the Antitrust Division at the DOJ, a former Chief of the National Criminal Antitrust Enforcement Section of the Antitrust Division, and former merger enforcement attorneys from the FTC. The group also includes one of the leading competition lawyers in Europe, a Ph.D. economist and law school professor, and lawyers who have served in prestigious appellate clerkships. They work closely with Cadwalader's leading corporate and litigation teams, offering an essential link between antitrust and the major markets driving today's strategic business transactions.
