Antitrust & Competition

Protecting consumers’ rights to fair prices

When corporations engage in unfair business practices, consumers pay the price.

Conspiracies to monopolize markets, limit competition, and raise and fix prices on goods and services violate state and federal antitrust laws enacted to protect consumers and the economy.

Steven Williams Law advocates for those who have been harmed when corporations run afoul of these laws.

We have represented classes and individuals in cases involving essential and life-saving products and services, such as memory chips, pharmaceuticals, air transportation, capacitors, lithium ion batteries, energy, food, and more.

As a leader in more than a dozen prominent antitrust cases throughout the United States, our skillful advocacy has recovered over $2 billion for clients and resulted in groundbreaking judicial decisions that helped shape the law.
