Antitrust Litigation

About the Committee

Mission

The goal of the Antitrust Litigation Committee is to promote, develop and enhance the skills of litigators practicing in the specialized areas of antitrust, trade regulation, and unfair competition law, providing a forum for meaningful networking and the exchange of ideas, while also offering litigation and trial resources of broad appeal to all litigators’ practices.  For the seasoned antitrust attorney, trial specialist and up and comer alike, we will focus on litigation aspects of antitrust law—from procedural issues to class actions and MDL proceedings, to use of experts and antitrust trials, as well as emerging legal developments such as the intersection of intellectual property and antitrust law. The Committee provides a unique networking forum and practice resource for litigators that primarily (or just periodically) handle and try antitrust cases.

Message from the Chairs

Welcome to the Antitrust Litigation Committee’s web page.

We are very excited to announce that the ABA Section of Litigation has reinstituted the Antitrust Litigation Committee, after its much missed absence these last few years.  While other groups, including the ABA’s Antitrust Section, focus on a wide array of substantive antitrust topics, our Committee will provide a unique hub for lawyers that litigate and try antitrust cases, offering valuable networking and leadership opportunities as well as practice development resources and programming on the substantive, procedural, and practical skills necessary for successful antitrust litigators.  If you handle antitrust litigation, we want to help you make the most out of your practice.

Please join us to learn from and network with top litigators who share a common interest in the challenges and intricacies of antitrust cases, have access to our Committee resources, and contribute to our programs and publications. Committee membership is free with your membership to the ABA’s Section of Litigation.  Even if antitrust litigation is only a part of your practice, we encourage you to join us. If you are not a member of the Section of Litigation, we invite you to join now and become an active member of the Antitrust Litigation Committee.

If you are interested in rolling up your sleeves with us to help form and develop the future of the Antitrust Litigation Committee, please contact us.  We want your ideas and energy!  We are looking for a diverse group of subcommittee leaders from across the country (including attorneys from the plaintiffs and defense bar, government and private litigators, young lawyers, corporate counsel, academics, and expert consultants) to lead these efforts with us. This fall, there is the unique and particularly rewarding opportunity to help shape and build the Antitrust Litigation Committee from the ground up, developing programs and other benefits to meet the needs and interests of our members. Want to be a key contributor?  Network with experienced and up and comer antitrust litigators?  Join the Antitrust Litigation Committee and get engaged!

The best way to become more involved is to join one of our many subcommittees, which include:

  • Communications & Publications (including newsletter, website, social media, and membership communications editors)
  • Criminal Litigation
  • Experts
  • Intellectual Property & Antitrust
  • International
  • Procedural Issues, MDLs and Class Actions
  • Trial Practice
  • Young Lawyers

We also have endless publishing opportunities on our Committee’s web page (Practice Points) and in future newsletters, as well as opportunities to speak and develop other programming. Again, please reach out to us if you would like to get involved in one of our subcommittees or have ideas for member benefits of interest to you in our inaugural year. Our success depends on your participation, feedback, and engagement! We look forward to meeting and working with you.
