Antitrust & Competition: Class Certification

Gnarus’ experts have decades of experience working in the class certification phases of antitrust class certification matters, whether from the plaintiff side or from the defense side. However, we are also keenly aware of recent trends in the legal environment that have raised the bar for class certification as embodied in, e.g., the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Comcast v. Behrend and the Third Circuit’s earlier decision in the Hydrogen Peroxide Antitrust Litigation. At the same time, class action and competition law in Europe and other overseas jurisdictions has been rapidly evolving, with the potential to create both risks and opportunities for potential litigants with exposure there. We believe that the recent changes in the domestic and international legal environments have made it more important than ever before for counsel to work closely with competition economics and/or damages experts throughout the antitrust class certification process. Our team has the necessary experience and insight to help counsel meet these continuing challenges.
