Jim McGibbon provides the firm’s clients with experienced antitrust representation in connection with mergers and other business transactions and defends them against related governmental investigations. He also litigates antitrust cases on behalf of his clients, including both private class actions and criminal defense. Jim offers strategic guidance that reflects a seasoned understanding of client business objectives and industry-specific economics. He has represented clients in both traditional industries, like construction materials, paper and textiles, and in more technologically advanced sectors, such as payment processing, pharmaceuticals and defense. Jim also works with clients in highly regulated industries like health care, energy and insurance, coordinating with the firm’s regulatory attorneys who deal with the relevant administrative agencies.  

Jim regularly represents clients in antitrust merger investigations conducted by federal agencies, including “second request” investigations. He has defended clients in criminal grand jury investigations of alleged price fixing and market allocation; in federal and state civil investigations of alleged price fixing and exclusionary practices; and in class action litigation asserting claims of alleged price fixing or market allocation in oil, manufacturing, health care diagnostics, insurance and agricultural businesses. In addition to antitrust litigation, Jim handles government investigations and private litigation relating to alleged deceptive advertising and related consumer protection issues. His substantial litigation experience includes handling complex commercial disputes in matters that include franchising and health care.
