Robinson+Cole lawyers have extensive experience representing clients throughout the region in the area of business and trade regulation. Our work in this is threefold: First, we advise clients on numerous trade and antitrust issues, including government review of mergers and acquisitions; allegations of state unfair competition and consumer protection statute violations, or allegations of False Claims Act violations; and Robinson-Patman Act price discrimination allegations. Second, we represent clients in opposing and complying with civil investigative demands and grand jury and Internal Revenue Service subpoenas. Third, in response to concerns raised internally by clients or by government agencies, we conduct internal investigations, with an eye toward avoiding or reducing the scope of government enforcement actions. In those instances where investigation or litigation by the government becomes unavoidable, we litigate cases and negotiate settlements.
