Criminal Litigation, Investigations and Compliance Programs
Vorys antitrust lawyers know the grand jury process and have defended clients in criminal antitrust trials. We know the antitrust enforcers, and we know how to put together the kind of compliance programs that keep clients out of antitrust trouble. Our antitrust team has helped clients to avoid indictments, defend criminal cases, or prevent illegal conduct.
Cartel Investigations and Litigation
Vorys has defended criminal antitrust indictments and investigations throughout the United States, for both corporations and individuals. We have represented foreign nationals from Europe, Asia and Latin America in criminal investigations. This range of experience is the reason that Vorys is the only law firm in the Midwest to have an attorney serving on the ABA Antitrust Section’s International Cartel Task Force. Some of the significant matters we have handled include:
- Representing a corporate executive of a major corporation as an individual defendant in a criminal price-fixing case trial, gaining an acquittal.
- Representing clients in numerous grand jury investigations, including recent investigations involving the carbon fiber, polyester staple, automotive paints, oil drilling products, residential window products, veterinary services and waste hauling industries.
Vorys has the experience to help our clients avoid exposure to criminal and civil antitrust liability. Our development of compliance programs is based on thoroughly knowing our clients’ businesses and points of exposure. We make antitrust issues understandable to employees at all levels of an organization -- and because we know antitrust, we do so efficiently and cost-effectively.
