Anticompetitive behaviors giving rise to antitrust claims can occur in a number of business settings, such as in contracts, pricing or bidding activities, treatment of customers or suppliers, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property protection or misappropriation. Rigorous economic analysis can be the cornerstone of many such antitrust claims.
