Whistle Blower Action


Federal and state antitrust laws are designed to protect and promote competition among businesses by prohibiting price fixing and other forms of anticompetitive conduct. Violations can range from straight forward agreements among competitors to raise prices above competitive prices to often complicated schemes designed to increase cartelists profits at the expense of their customers.

While anticompetitive activity invariably leads to higher prices for customers throughout the chain of distribution, it also tends to stifle innovation by removing cartelists incentive to make their products better or by slamming the door on innovative new entrants to the marketplace.
