Antitrust Violation Lawyers
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.
If the government is investigating you or your business for antitrust violations, contact an experienced South Carolina criminal defense attorney today. Being found guilty of antitrust violations is no minor offense. Antitrust violations are felonies and could mean hefty fines and stiff penalties including imprisonment.
South Carolina Federal Antitrust Violation Law
The South Carolina Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys at Strom Law Firm, LLC are well equipped to defend personal and business interests in white collar criminal matters and regulatory violations. The FBI refers to white collar crimes as “those illegal acts that are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust, and which are not dependent on the application or threat of physical force or violence. Individuals and organizations commit these acts to obtain money, property or services; or to secure personal or business advantage.” White collar crime is common and many people accused of white collar crime have no prior experience with the judicial system.
As government regulation of business and industry increases, developing measures that comply with the law becomes more important and more difficult. Recent government initiatives expose business interests to further scrutiny by creating incentives for whistle blower complaints.
Charges of this nature are severely damaging, both personally and professionally.
