Phoenix Anti-Trust Lawyer
United States and Arizona anti-trust law prohibits anti-trust activities. These activities include unfair business practices, such as bid-rigging, price fixing, monopolization, and other deceptive practices. It doesn’t matter how large or how small these activities are, they are punishable under state and federal law.
If you are suspected of anti-trust activities, you will find that you will be prosecuted hard because the enforcement of anti-trust laws is very important in ensuring a stable free-market economy. Ensuring fair practices means that prices for goods and services remain fair and that there is a wide variety of products and services to choose from.
Anti-trust laws are in place to ensure fair competition on the market. These laws keep one company from having a monopoly that can prevent the other companies from thriving. It is true that there are some companies that grow by leaps and bounds and they seem to be everywhere, but it does help them if they are the first to enter an area or it is determined that they will not infringe on businesses already in that particular area. Nonetheless, price fixing in order to run the others out of business is a violation.
All in all, anti-trust laws help preserve the relationship between consumers and businesses. Consumers receive fair pricing and other businesses are given the room that they need to thrive. But the moment that price changes are perceived as predatory pricing or monopolization is attempted, an anti-trust investigation can ensue and this may result in charges if it is believed that there are malicious acts at play.
