Antitrust Law Fundamentals


This practice note introduces antitrust practice, beginning with a short history of antitrust law itself. It then explores some, but not all, of the antitrust statutes governing federal antitrust law (there are state and international antitrust laws, too). This statutory discussion briefly details the types of conduct antitrust law proscribes. And finally, this practice note highlights the parties—public and private—that enforce the antitrust laws.
