Using Litigation to Achieve Practical Business Solutions

Antitrust

Stone & Magnanini LLP attorneys have significant experience both defending and prosecuting civil antitrust cases brought either as class actions or individual actions, and defending criminal antitrust matters.  As former partners of Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, one of the nation’s leading antitrust litigation practices, David S. Stone and Robert A. Magnanini have been involved in major complex antitrust cases.  Handling antitrust matters requires not only a solid grounding in the complex law of antitrust, but also a deep understanding of business practices and economics.  In cases being investigated by the government, both civil and criminal, Stone & Magnanini’s experience in dealing with the U.S. Justice Department, various United States Attorneys Offices and state Attorneys General is invaluable to our clients.
