Wachtell Lipton’s antitrust practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions and government investigations, including international antitrust and banking antitrust issues.

Our department analyzes transactions to determine whether they raise antitrust issues, develops strategies to address those potential concerns, and represents clients before the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, state attorneys general and foreign antitrust enforcement authorities, and in litigation challenging transactions on antitrust grounds. Our department takes a leading role in virtually all of the mergers and acquisitions in which we are involved.
