An Antitrust and Trade Regulation attorney handles legal matters involving antitrust and trade regulation issues. Antitrust laws regulate businesses in order to promote competition and competitive market practices. The goal of antitrust law is to prevent business monopolies from being able to dominate the market and charge unreasonable prices due to lack of competitors. Trade regulations address the law of trade between nations and involve treaties as well as import, export and tariff issues.
