Antitrust laws prohibit certain anticompetitive practices by businesses. Such practices may include:
- Conspiring to fix prices;
- Agreeing with competitors to restrict production;
- Agreeing with competitors not to compete for customers or in particular geographic markets;
- Conspiring to rig bids; and
If a company or individual suffers financial injury due to such anticompetitive practices, it may by law recover three times the actual damages. A court may also prevent the defendant from continuing its unlawful behavior and order the defendant to pay the reasonable legal expenses of the plaintiff, including attorneys’ fees.
