Regulation of Antitrust Activity
The federal government is careful to protect the economic structure of American businesses. When companies plot to upset the status quo, various federal organizations, including the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the Federal Trade Commission may investigate or take legal action against these companies.
Trusts can affect various elements of business:
- Contracts: In a trust, companies often rig bids for local or government contracts so that a specific firm is guaranteed to win.
- Prices: Companies that would normally compete may decide to fix prices at or above a certain level, disrupting a fair pricing scheme.
- Customer allocation: Businesses have been known to divide business by area to minimize competition in such regions.
All of these activities raise prices, affecting other, often smaller businesses, in addition to the people who buy their products. This crime is considered a serious offense, and can result in millions of dollars in fines, as well as other criminal penalties. If you or your business have been charged with antitrust activity, take immediate action to ensure that you receive the best possible defense.
