Antitrust & Securities Litigation

We Counsel Businesses Through Securities and Antitrust Claims and Investigations.

The antitrust laws of the United States are contained in several pieces of legislation. The most commonly known are the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act. Each of these statutes prohibit different types of anti-competitive conduct involving monopolization of markets, unfair competition, price fixing and conspiracies in restraint of trade, and mergers or acquisitions that lessen competition. Utah has created statutory equivalents to the Sherman Act and the Clayton Act.

Under both federal and state law, antitrust and securities statutes govern the conduct of business generally, and the sale and purchase of securities specifically. Fabian VanCott provides experienced attorneys to bring and defend civil claims under these statutes, or to help guide a party involved in a federal or state investigation.

The securities laws of the United States are also contained in a long list of legislation, with most litigation brought under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These statutes, and their state law equivalents, create requirements for buying and selling securities including disclosure of material information and regulation of conduct in the market.

Litigation under these statutes, whether you are accused of prohibited conduct or you believe you have been injured by such conduct, is complicated and requires knowledge of the statutes involved. Fabian VanCott provides that expertise.
