With the decline in regulatory enforcement of U.S. antitrust laws-as well as the tacit political approval of the “too-big-to-fail” business model-our nation has witnessed a dramatic increase in anticompetitive behavior and unfair trade practices. Korein Tillery is at the cutting edge of privately investigating and enforcing the antitrust laws on behalf of a wide range of businesses and consumer groups. For example, Korein Tillery recently spearheaded a multi-year investigation into the anticompetitive practices of a cartel of major financial institutions that led to a de facto oligopoly in the credit default swaps market, resulting in tens of billions of dollars per year in increased costs to market participants. In addition to leading private investigative efforts in the derivatives area, Korein Tillery was one of the first firms in the country to file antitrust lawsuits on behalf of hedge funds, small banks, and pension plans that had been harmed by this restrained competition. Korein Tillery also currently represents major institutional investors and governmental clients in antitrust litigation stemming from the rigging of LIBOR, foreign currency exchange rates, and the ISDA benchmark rate. Our attorneys are well-versed in U.S. antitrust laws and consult with some of the world’s leading economists and industry insiders to ensure that our nation’s markets remain open to innovation and unrestrained competition. We have helped recover hundreds of millions of dollars in antitrust damages over the past five years.
