Antitrust and Product Distribution

Gibney advises its domestic and international clients regarding their rights and responsibilities under the trade regulation, unfair competition and antitrust laws. We have counseled clients in varied industries, such as the importation and distribution of watches, cosmetics, fragrances, fabrics and fine giftware; publishing; sports; entertainment; advertising; electronics; and public relations, among others. We have extensive experience in helping our clients establish dealer networks and contractual arrangements, and in managing and terminating those relationships. In the event of a dispute over a dealer agreement or termination, we represent our clients at arbitration and litigation. In addition to counseling and litigation services, we prepare antitrust compliance programs and provides advice for the planning of mergers and acquisitions. We also assist our clients in preparing employee education and document management programs.
