WHAT WE DO

 

The Antitrust and Business Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas serves Texas lawyers whose practices focus on antitrust or complex business litigation. The section sponsors seminars on topics of interest to antitrust and business litigation practitioners as well as antitrust compliance and counseling practitioners. The section also has two publications. The first is a Monograph on the Texas antitrust laws, Antitrust and Related Statutes, which includes in-depth discussion of the Texas antitrust statutes, their legislative history, and judicial interpretations. The second is the Texas Business Litigation Journal, which provides analysis concerning complex business litigation topics such as business torts, class actions, Delaware fiduciary duty litigation, RICO actions, and securities actions, as well as antitrust.

Through this website, the section hopes to make its work more accessible to the bar and section members. You can navigate this site to learn more about the section, its publications, and programs. You can also access links to web sites of interest to antitrust and business litigation practitioners. We hope this site is useful to you in your practice.

Antitrust law aims to protect trade and commerce from unfair restraints, monopolies and price fixing. Antitrust law is primarily governed by three federal laws: the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the FTC Act. Most states, including Texas, also have their own antitrust statutes patterned on federal laws.
