Antitrust & Competition Law Cases
If you have been subpoenaed or charged with an antitrust or competition crime in the United States or abroad, you need an experienced, skilled, and authoritative attorney to represent you and your interests. We proudly represent our corporate and individual clients for price fixing, bid rigging, market allocation, and other claims of anticompetitive conduct. Antitrust charges are cases against companies and organizations who purposefully try to gain too much power within a specific industry or market. The idea of antitrust law is to keep businesses operating honestly and fairly without intentionally colluding against their customers for financial gain or creating monopolies and cartels.
Leading Dysart Willis Houchin & Hubbard’s antitrust practice as Senior Counsel is Jim Kurosad, who has over 30 years of experience that is unmatched in the field of criminal investigations and prosecutions. During his career, he has served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, both in the Eastern District of North Carolina and Northern District of Georgia; a Trial Attorney and an Assistant Chief for the Antitrust Division, Atlanta Field Office; and as a Special Agent and Legal Advisor for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which all fall within the United States Department of Justice (DOJ). This unique combination of experience makes him invaluable to anyone who is being investigated or charged with a white collar crime.
Jim specifically chose Raleigh to start his antitrust practice because of its rich economic environment, including hi-tech companies in Research Triangle Park (RTP), cutting-edge hospitals, acclaimed universities, and a vibrant agriculture industry, which is ripe for illegal collusion amongst competitors. He can help navigate corporate and individual clients during the federal grand jury, indictment, plea negotiation, and trial stages of any federal prosecution to the most favorable outcome possible. Jim is not only a seasoned trial lawyer, but particularly adept in obtaining leniency for clients under the DOJ and European Commission amnesty programs. He also can counsel clients on how to react to dawn raids, search warrants, and subpoenas, which are used by law enforcement agencies to obtain incriminating evidence.
