Weil provides counseling and representation before government agencies for leading global businesses and handles major antitrust litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants.

Weil's Antitrust/Competition practice is described by Chambers as "an 'outstanding player,' [that] has achieved a national and international reputation for the quality of its advice to some of the world's largest corporations from the healthcare, pharmaceutical, medical device, retail, entertainment, insurance, airline, electronics and defense industries. The practice is split between the firm's highly rated New York office, praised for its strength in litigation, and Washington, DC, where transactional and regulatory expertise is the order of the day." Weil's antitrust partners are consistently recognized as top leaders in their field.

We represent clients before the US Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, and state antitrust enforcement agencies on a full spectrum of mergers and acquisitions, investigative and litigation matters. We also regularly appear before the European Commission and other regulatory bodies in the EU, Eastern Europe, and Asia.

Our attorneys vigorously represent clients globally with respect to mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, competition policy, franchising, dealer relations, technology licensing, advertising, trade associations, single-firm conduct and legislative initiatives. We provide integrated solutions to competition related business and litigation issues by working with the firm’s other practice areas, coordinating with the Corporate, Mergers & Acquisitions, Intellectual Property, Restructuring/Distress Management/Insolvency, and Securities/Corporate Governance Litigation groups to structure transactions and business practices that minimize antitrust concerns.

Our clients include some of the largest corporations in the world, including businesses involved in the pharmaceutical, medical device, retailing, television, publishing, information, oil and gas, airline, computer, telecommunications, financial services, automobile, electronics, and defense industries. We also work extensively with major trade associations and buying groups involving a full range of regulatory issues.
