As part of each client's business team, we provide ongoing antitrust counseling on a daily basis. This counseling takes the form of proactive advice and policies to help our clients identify and avoid potential antitrust red flags. We routinely assist clients in structuring their product distribution systems, addressing issues such as price discrimination, resale price maintenance, tying and bundling of products, exclusive dealer arrangements, customer and territorial limitations, and refusals to deal.
When a competitor attempts to achieve a leadership position by utilizing unfair marketing or advertising practices, we work with our clients to take the offensive. We also vigorously defend our clients when it is alleged that their marketing practices give them an unfair advantage. Our daily interaction with competition agencies on our clients' behalf ensures that we understand the agencies' current thinking in terms of enforcement policies and plans and can guide clients accordingly.
King & Spalding's antitrust lawyers work in tandem with each client, helping them contend with and manage the complex challenges and day-to-day issues that invariably arise as they pursue their business objectives. From the beginning we set our sights on the end result and then draw on deep experience and innovative thinking to get our clients there.
