As one of the few firms in Northeast Florida with experience in litigating antitrust matters, Rogers Towers is dedicated to helping businesses navigate and resolve the complicated antitrust issues facing them.
With the global economy ever-expanding, businesses face antitrust litigation now more than ever. This litigation can come from several sources (for example, from the government, consumer class actions, or competitors) and in many forms (for example, restraint of trade claims, pricing issues, and mergers and acquisitions). Accordingly, successful defense of an antitrust claim often requires an attorney with experience and a willingness to develop creative solutions.
