Green Bay Antitrust Attorney
State and federal antitrust laws are intended to protect consumers against unfair restraints on trade and foster healthy competition among organizations in the same market.

Antitrust is a complicated area of law inexorably linked with economics, so you cannot risk your company’s interests by attempting to go it alone.
Wisconsin and Federal Antitrust Laws
There are multiple antitrust statutes enacted by the federal government, and several amendments have improved lawmakers’ approaches to addressing unfair restraints of trade. Wisconsin’s antitrust laws closely parallel two core acts that date back to the 1800s:
- The Sherman Act makes it illegal to maintain or attempt to attain market power through anticompetitive conduct and,
- The Clayton Act forbids, inter alia, price discrimination and provides guidance on mergers and acquisitions.
Both Wisconsin laws and federal statutes grant government officials with the power to enforce antitrust laws. However, government officials sometimes decline to employ this authority for a variety of reasons. For this reason, antitrust law provides another option for companies hurt by unfair competitive practices.
