Bona Law PC helps its clients solve all types of antitrust and competition problems efficiently and effectively. We work with clients to create strategies and solutions that deliver top quality legal work—but also satisfy other vital client concerns, including return on their legal investment and demands on their executive time.
The legal market is undergoing structural changes. Most clients still want outstanding attorneys with major matter experience. But more and more clients (including major corporate clients) have come to resent some hallmarks of biglaw operations like overbilling and overstaffing, bloated overhead in the form of expensive mahogany and granite offices, and—worst of all—the sheer inattentiveness of some biglaw firms to their questions and needs.
But clients don’t need to accept this treatment any longer. There is another choice: Increasingly sophisticated clients now understand that boutique firms can deliver the same top quality work, but deliver it with greater responsiveness and lower costs than biglaw firms could ever manage. And in many cases (including ours), they do it with the same lawyers who used to work at biglaw firms.
In that spirit, Bona Law is dedicated to partnering with its clients to create custom strategies that take advantage of available technologies, third-party discovery and document review resources, and if necessary, our extensive network of highly qualified, experienced, and well-credentialed attorneys all over the world through IR Global. We can quickly scale up or down to meet your needs.
Bona Law offers clients the advantages of a large international law firm—top credentials, analytical skills, practical experience, superior writing product, and national and global reach— with the added benefits of greater value and greater responsiveness to client needs.Antitrust and Competition
Our antitrust and competition practice includes the following: (1) Litigation and Appeals; (2) Mergers; and (3) Market Conduct Counseling. Our attorneys have extensive experience in all three areas, including many major cases and deals over multiple decades. They are leaders in their field and collectively have written many books, law review articles, legal newspaper and bar articles, and blog posts on antitrust and competition law.
Bona Law also produces an antitrust blog called The Antitrust Attorney Blog that offers guidance on antitrust, competition, and appellate issues, written in a form that most people can understand (not just antitrust attorneys and academics). Our blog is regularly read by antitrust attorneys, non-antitrust attorneys, business leaders, legislative staff, and government officials, and by people all over the world.
Bona Law attorneys have extensive appellate experience in federal and state courts throughout the country. Our clients include (1) trial attorneys who need to add appellate expertise to their cases, and (2) clients who lost at trial and want a fresh and independent look at their case. We can play any role in an appeal from complete representation to joint representation to appellate counseling or behind-the-scenes writing and researching.
If you want some detail about how at least one of our attorneys writes an appellate brief, read Jarod Bona’s article on “How to Write a Significant Antitrust or Appellate Brief.” You might also enjoy his articles on Three Components of Every Effective Appellate Argument, What is Great Legal Writing, and Three Reasons to Hire an Appellate Attorney.
Finally, Bona Law attorneys have filed many amicus briefs in appellate courts over the years. Read this article if you want to determine whether an amicus brief will help your company.Complex Business Litigation
Sometimes our clients have problems that don’t involve antitrust or competition issues. Although we advise our clients of potential solutions other than litigation, sometimes litigation is the best or only option. In those situations, we litigate aggressively but intelligently for our clients.
Our litigation experience and capability ranges from complex litigation spanning multiple jurisdictions to simple breach of contract matters, and everything in between.Real Estate
A growing practice area for our firm is real estate, with a focus on real-estate investors. Bona Law produces a blog called Titles and Deeds, which publishes articles, mostly legal in nature, on topics that may be useful for real-estate investors.Geographic Reach
