Hogan Marren Babbo & Rose, Ltd.’s Antitrust and Trade Regulation Practice focuses on providing proactive advice and counsel to help our clients avoid potential antitrust issues and challenges. Our attorneys have a solid understanding of the complex federal and state laws regulating competition and work with our clients to implement creative strategies and measures that mitigate exposure to antitrust liability. When problems surface, our lawyers offer a full range of support, from helping our clients respond to investigations initiated by federal and state antitrust enforcement agencies, to navigating our clients through antitrust arbitration proceedings, to litigating high-stakes antitrust matters in court.
At HMBR, we appreciate the difficult challenges our clients confront in trying to keep pace with evolving antitrust laws and trade regulations. Our practice primarily focuses on clients operating in the healthcare and education sectors. This concentration allows us to provide our clients with an in-depth analysis of the complex laws and regulations impacting their particular businesses and industries.
Offering a Broad Range of Services
Our Antitrust and Trade Regulation Practice provides a broad range of counseling and compliance services in three core areas:
- Antitrust Litigation and Government Investigations. The Antitrust and Trade Regulation Practice at HMBR represents clients in both private antitrust litigation and government investigations initiated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Our team is composed of lawyers with extensive trial and litigation experience, including former federal prosecutors and government attorneys with a first-hand understanding of how the enforcement agencies investigate and handle these matters.
- Business Antitrust Advising. At HMBR, we aim to provide our clients with the information and advice they need to prevent antitrust problems from surfacing. We work with our clients to identify and resolve potential antitrust risks that may arise in connection with both day-to-day and long-term business operations. Our lawyers also advise clients on all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, including assisting clients in obtaining Hart-Scott-Rodino clearance from the FTC and the DOJ.
- Health Care Antitrust Advisory and Defense. Our attorneys work with clients to identify and address antitrust issues and considerations specific to the health care industry. We counsel and represent health care clients in a wide range of antitrust matters, from complex business transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures, to clinical integration, to government investigations and antitrust litigation.
