Antitrust laws are laws used to regulate anti-competitive behavior in business, as well as regulate unfair business practices. The government maintains these strict antitrust laws to limit the control of one business over the market. Essentially, the US government is preventing the formation of large monopolies.
Antitrust law violations can happen to anyone. You do not have to have a big business to be charged with antitrust violations. What you may see as business negotiations between your business and another, the government may view these negotiations to be antitrust violations.
