Jones & Keller provides litigation and counseling services relating to competition issues in a wide variety of industries.
We represent clients in antitrust investigations and litigation before federal, state and administrative tribunals, from investigation and trial through the highest appellate levels, including the United States Supreme Court, the Federal Trade Commission and the (former) Civil Aeronautics Board. The head of this practice area served for almost a decade as the Chief of the Colorado Attorney General’s Antitrust Unit.

Our expertise in this area extends to the federal Sherman, Clayton, McCarran-Ferguson and Robinson-Patman Acts; the antitrust statutes of Colorado and other states; the antitrust statute of limitations-extending doctrine of fraudulent concealment; the filed rate and Parker v. Brown state action immunity doctrines; and the Noerr-Pennington, labor and insurance antitrust exemptions.
Our competition law experience encompasses the college housing, commercial printing, compass, computer, construction, driver’s license, energy and public utilities, healthcare and medical technology, insurance, international trade, motorcycle, newspaper, real estate, recreation, resort association, tobacco, tourism, telecommunications and transportation industries.
We provide our clients with advice and counseling on the antitrust implications of business activities such as pricing; dealing arrangements and distribution networks; joint ventures, and trade organizations. We also develop antitrust compliance plans.
