Antitrust

Our founding partner is recognized for pioneering the modern antitrust class action, leading to the recovery of billions of dollars for our clients and the classes we represent.

Since our founding in 1970, Berger & Montague has litigated many of the most significant civil antitrust cases alleging price fixing and monopoly abuse, including, for example, Bogosian v. Gulf Oil Corp., In re Corrugated Container Antitrust Litigation, In re Currency Conversion Fee Antitrust Litigation, and In re Infant Formula Antitrust Litigation. Berger & Montague has also played a principal role in obtaining over one billion dollars in settlements from drug companies alleged to have impeded the entry of generics and artificially inflated drug prices. As a result of our successes and the skill, reputation and experience of our firm's antitrust lawyers, Berger & Montague is routinely appointed by federal courts to serve in leadership roles in complex antitrust class action cases.

For example, Berger & Montague has been appointed by federal courts as lead or co-lead counsel in some of the most significant and complex antitrust cases currently pending on behalf of businesses and consumers, including:

  • In re Payment Card & Merchant Discount Litigation (alleging that merchants have been overcharged billions of dollars per year by Visa and MasterCard due to their anticompetitive conduct);
  • Ross v. Bank of America (alleging that the largest credit card-issuing banks conspired to implement and impose arbitration clauses and thereby block access to the courts to consumers in cardholder agreements); and
  • Meijer, Inc. v. Abbott Labs. (alleging that Abbott Labs. engaged in monopoly bundling to impair its rivals and enable it to earn hundreds of millions in ill-gotten profits on HIV drugs Norvir and Kaletra).

The firm and its lawyers are regularly recognized by Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500, Martindale-Hubbell, America's Best Lawyers, Lawdragon.com, and The National Law Journal for outstanding work in antitrust litigation. Chambers & Partners notes with reference to the antitrust practice that the firm is "the top choice for plaintiff antitrust representation, particularly in complex class actions" and that it "stand[s] out by virtue of its first-class trial skills."

In 2015 Berger & Montague was ranked as a Top-Tier Firm for Antitrust: Civil Litigation and Class Actions in the United States by The Legal 500. Read more.
