Antitrust litigation of cartels in the U.S. is a complex area of law that skilled attorneys must guide their clients through. To fully understand the nuances of this area of law, we’re exploring the development of the Antitrust Criminal Penalty Enhancement and Reform Act (ACPERA) over the years and the growth of cartel litigation in the U.S.
Joining me for this conversation are two guests, Dylan Ballard and Mike Scarborough.

He is a trial lawyer who specializes in litigating antitrust and competition cases arising under the federal Sherman and Clayton Acts, as well as state antitrust, consumer protection, and unfair competition statutes.
