The Antitrust Section analyzes issues arising under the Federal Antitrust Statutes, primarily the Sherman Act and the Clayton Act. Issues involving market division, price-fixing, bid-rigging, refusals to deal, and other monopolistic, collusive behaviors are investigated often in conjunction with other states, and federal agencies when Alabama’s free market competitive landscape may be negatively impacted. The Antitrust Section also conducts merger review and analysis in order to protect Alabama’s competitive markets. The goal of the Antitrust Section is to protect competition by punishing illegal behavior. This is accomplished by aggressive investigation and prosecution of those who refuse to play by the rules, and further by intensive merger analysis to identify and address adverse anticompetitive effects.
