Antitrust laws, also referred to as “competition laws”, are statutes developed by the United States Government to protect consumers from predatory business practices. They ensure that fair competition exists in an open-market economy.
Antitrust litigation in the pharmaceutical industry encompasses potential class-action lawsuits reflecting anti-competitive conduct by innovator (branded) and generic pharmaceutical manufacturers. Some of the practices observed relate to terms and results of strategic alliances between key players that have the potential to create a market monopoly, thereby impacting the availability of lower-cost products (generic versions of innovator pharmaceuticals), including their pricing, marketing, and distribution procedures.
