Antitrust in Health Care

Ice Miller regularly advises health care clients on the unique implications that antitrust laws present in the health care industry.

Our antitrust practice spans several different areas of focus from proactively counseling on antitrust compliance and proposed business activities through government investigations and civil litigation. We frequently help clients navigate the complex antitrust considerations that can arise in distribution agreements, research agreements, payor negotiations, group purchasing, information exchanges and strategic transactions, such as mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. We also defend clients in response to, or in anticipation of, state and federal antitrust investigations, including claims of alleged price fixing. We have experience defending health care companies in civil antitrust litigation, including claims of alleged monopolization.
