In 2016, the Chicago Antitrust, Competition & Trade Regulation Group was recognized as the “Cartel & Trade Regulation Law Firm of the Year in Illinois” by the international review and assessment programs of both Corporate INTL Magazine and Global Law Experts.

The K&L Gates Antitrust, Competition & Trade Regulation Practice Group is positioned in strategic markets around the globe to help clients minimize antitrust risks, defend or pursue litigation, get deals through regulatory authorities, and leverage antitrust and competition laws.

We defend clients in some of the largest global cartel criminal investigations, parallel civil cases, and class actions; fine-tune global compliance programs and policies to mitigate lawsuits and government investigations; and obtain regulatory clearance of multi-billion dollar transactions for Fortune 500 companies.

Our geographic reach is valuable to globally integrated clients, given the increasing cooperation between antitrust/competition authorities worldwide.  We have more than 80 antitrust/competition practitioners, supported by a global firm of more than 2,000 lawyers, who provide well-coordinated advice to clients wherever they face competition issues.

We have a significant presence in the United States, the European Union (EU), and Asia-Pacific, including Australia and China. We represent clients before competition authorities, such as the Antitrust Division of the DOJ and FTC, the European Commission (EC), the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MofCom), the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), U.S. state attorneys general, and the competition authorities of the member states of the EU; in particular, the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority and the German Federal Cartel Office. We also represent clients before other U.S. and European regulatory bodies with jurisdiction over competition-related matters.

The Antitrust, Competition & Trade Regulation Law Practice Group and its lawyers have been recognized by several leading directories and publications, including U.S. News–Best Lawyers, Chambers USA, Chambers UK, The Legal 500 UK, Global Competition Review, and the International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers
