Our free market economy is a primary source of American innovation and prosperity, but a long-held principle in our society is that fair play in our markets is crucial for that innovation, prosperity, and national strength to endure. When powerful business interests, acting alone or in concert with others, abuse their market positions to gain unfair advantages, businesses of all sizes, consumers, and society at large are injured while the few enjoy ill-gotten, short-term benefits. Whether unlawfully obtaining or attempting to extend monopoly power, or conspiring with competitors to affect the prices of goods or services, unlawful business practices injure consumers, punish law-abiding businesses, and kill jobs and economic growth.
One of the most effective methods for injured consumers and businesses to fight back against the scourge of anticompetitive practices – and potentially obtain significant financial recoveries in the process – is to bring antitrust claims against offending market players. As a leading complex litigation and consumer protection law firm, McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP is well-positioned to advocate for its clients’ fair treatment in the increasingly complex consumer and commercial marketplace.
