Creative Thinkers

Sperling & Slater has been at the forefront of antitrust commercial cases for nearly 30 years, often representing major retailers who opt out of antitrust class actions to maximize litigation returns for their businesses.

Results Matter

We have extensive courtroom experience and focus only on litigation. Our forty-year history of trial and appellate wins and roster of high-powered clients speak for themselves. However, not every dispute should go to trial. Achieving our clients’ objectives is paramount to us and often those objectives are best achieved through mediation, arbitration or creative settlements.
