Antitrust Class Action Administration
 

The Clayton Act of 1914 created a private cause of action with treble damages for consumers who suffered financial losses due to anticompetitive corporate activity. The U.S. Supreme Court bolstered those rights with its 1979 opinion in Reiter v. Sonotone, noting specifically the importance of private antitrust causes of action to supplement the actions filed by the Department of Justice. Statistics verify the value of those private actions. Between 2012 and 2017, an average of more than 750 private antitrust cases were filed annually. Between 1990 and 2013, parties recovered an aggregate of more than $33 billion in the top 60 private antitrust cases. More than 75% of those cases were class actions.  

Antitrust class action settlements have many complexities and usually involve multifaceted classes and settlement recoveries. Heffler Claims Group has administered some of the most complex and high-profile antitrust cases in US history. Through our full-service, in-house media team, HF Media, Heffler has successfully implemented hundreds of court-approved notice media programs directed at both national and global audiences.
