Hagens Berman’s antitrust attorneys work to preserve healthy competition and fair trade in the marketplace by protecting consumers and businesses that purchase goods and services from price-fixing, market allocation agreements, monopolistic schemes and other violations of antitrust law.
Our attorneys have a deep understanding of the legal and economic issues within the marketplace, allowing us to employ groundbreaking market theories that shed light on monopolistic, restrictive and anti-competitive practices in violation of both federal and state antitrust and unfair competition laws.
Hagens Berman currently represents millions of consumers in several high-profile class-action antitrust lawsuits, and takes on major antitrust litigation that has the potential to improve market conditions for consumers and businesses. We have represented plaintiffs in markets as diverse as debit and credit cards services, personal computer components, television screens, electric and gas power, airlines, personal computer software, computer games and internet services.
In the pharmaceutical arena, Hagens Berman represents purchasers of all types in lawsuits alleging that drug companies illegally blocked or delayed generic drugs from coming to market. By keeping generics out of the market, drug companies force purchasers to continue buying their expensive brand-name drugs, lining drug companies' pockets at the expense of those who pay for drugs. Our firm's pharmaceutical antitrust recoveries have returned many hundreds of millions of dollars to purchasers.
We are proud of our track record which includes some of the largest recoveries in the nation. As in all practice areas we fight until we have achieved a high percent recovery for our clients.

Selecting an antitrust attorney will have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.
When searching for an antitrust attorney to represent you,
you want a firm with a record of success at the top of the profession.
Hagens Berman fights with the creativity and tenacity to continue to raise the bar and take on every case with the goal of achieving the best outcome for the largest group of individuals.
Our firm operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning the victims we represent pay nothing at all unless we win. Attorney fees are paid based on an industry percentage of overall settlement terms, allowing plaintiffs to reap the rewards.
At the basis of all that motivates Hagens Berman is our mission for corporate reform. It’s through our work that we continue to uphold and fight for the rights of those most vulnerable to corporate greed and negligence.
We achieve results, and our track record proves it. While many class-action or individual plaintiff cases result in large legal fees and no meaningful result for the client, Hagens Berman finds ways to return real value.
