Legal Analytics for Antitrust Litigation

Lex Machina’s Legal Analytics for Antitrust Litigation provides attorneys, and companies they represent, with the ability to make data-driven decisions about federal antitrust case strategy and tactics. Now, you can use quantified insights into the behavior of district court judges, opposing parties, and opposing counsel to gain a competitive advantage in antitrust litigation.

Lex Machina’s antitrust data lets you analyze federal cases brought under the Sherman Act, Clayton Act, Robinson-Patman Act, or Federal Trade Commission Act. It also enables you to identify all cases that are part of multidistrict litigation.

Use Cases

Analyze Class Actions, DOJ/FTC Enforcement cases (contested or administrative), Robinson-Patman Act price discrimination cases, as well as whether antitrust counterclaims were asserted.

Include Multidistrict Litigation, as our case data is integrated with data from the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to provide accurate MDL case counts. We link procedurally connected cases to let you analyze them in the right context.

Analyze case resolutions and quickly see why each case terminated, whether for procedural reasons (consolidation, transfer, stay, MDL), or as a likely settlement. If the plaintiff or defendant won, also see at what point the case was won (default judgment, consent judgment, judgment on the pleadings, summary judgment, trial, or JMOL).

Review antitrust findings, see specific violations of antitrust laws, such as §1 of the Sherman Act or §7 of the Clayton Act, as well as defenses, such as Antitrust Exemption, Rule of Reason, or No Antitrust Injury.
