Investigation of Price Fixing & Market Suppressing in Violation of Antitrust Laws
These matters include:
- Lipitor. The firm has been asked to investigate claims that Pfizer illegally suppressed competition by cutting a deal to keep a generic manufacturer from entering the United States market. Lipitor is the most successful pharmaceutical ever, and Pfizer earns more than $12 billion per year from United States’ sales of Lipitor.
- Auto Wire Harness. The firm is prosecuting claims involving a price-fixing conspiracy for auto wire harnesses, the electrical system which operates automobiles. Several international companies, including Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd., have been implicated.
