Distribution-Related Antitrust Counseling

We offer the experience and pragmatic approach to assist clients in handling their distribution and supply chain issues. We regularly advise clients on such pricing issues as suggested retail pricing, co-op restrictions on advertised price, below-cost pricing, price and locality discrimination, and rebate programs. Our experience with the Robinson-Patman Act — including experience litigating price discrimination claims — provides a framework for advising clients on their pricing programs. We also work with clients to identify their strategic channel objectives and, together with members of our Distribution & Franchise Practice, to assess the use of non-price restraints to further clients’ business interests and create a stronger distribution system.
