For over thirty years, the firm has stood at the forefront of antitrust litigation, representing companies and individuals in antitrust class actions, multi-district proceedings, federal and state criminal investigations and in civil and criminal trials. Our leadership in this area began with firm founder Emmet Bondurant, who was praised by Chambers USA as “far and away the best antitrust lawyer in the state of Georgia.” Our partners occupy leadership positions in the State Bar Antitrust Section and regularly publish and present on a variety of antitrust litigation topics.

We have supported clients in antitrust litigation involving a wide range of industries, including airlines, building materials, hospitals, health care, insurance, manufacturing, energy, agricultural products, sports and financial services.
