A team of antitrust litigators from Jones Day offices throughout the United States has published the new book Litigating Civil Antitrust Matters in the United States, released by Matthew Bender in December 2015.

"Antitrust litigation in the United States has become increasingly complex, costly, and time-consuming. This publication addresses the most common types of civil antitrust litigation, including the various causes of action, that we are seeing on an increasingly frequent basis today," said editor-in-chiefJeffrey LeVee, an Antitrust & Competition Law Practice partner in Jones Day's Los Angeles Office.
