Over the past ten years, Schertler & Onorato has been involved in just about every major antitrust investigation conducted by the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, especially as those investigations have expanded to encompass businesses and industries around the world.  Our lawyers have been involved in the representation of individuals who have come under DOJ scrutiny in markets involving air cargo services, automotive parts, automobile ocean transport, various pharmaceutical products, LCD panels, vitamin products, and chemical products, to name just a few.  We also have represented over a half dozen individuals in the expansive “auto parts” investigations.  Our clients have included foreign nationals from Europe, Asia, and South America.  We have been very successful in negotiating non-prosecution agreements for a number of our clients, and none of our clients has been prosecuted by the Antitrust Division.  David Schertler, a founding partner of the firm, began his career with the Antitrust Division and was responsible for government investigations into both criminal and civil violations of the U.S. antitrust laws.  Robert Spagnoletti, a partner with the firm, was responsible for a number of antitrust matters while he served as Attorney General for the District of Columbia.
