Bart Daniel has successfully prosecuted and defended numerous civil and criminal antitrust investigations. As a former Assistant State Attorney General and federal prosecutor who has prosecuted antitrust cases, Bart is uniquely qualified to handle these matters.

Bart is proactive yet discreet, understanding the sensitive nature of a criminal antitrust investigation to his highly respected clients. Whether the matter is being investigated by the United States Attorney, the DOJ Antitrust Division, the State Attorney General or an investigative agency such as the FBI, he has a proven track record. While Daniel is best known for his successful courtroom defenses in high profile cases, his biggest wins have come privately, convincing prosecutors and investigators to decline criminal prosecution and quietly close their files.

As with other areas of Daniel's white collar practice, he discreetly determines the nature and scope of the problem and advises his clients on the advisability of self-reporting, commencing settlement discussions or mobilizing for trial.

Bart has also successfully defended civil and criminal antitrust cases at trial. By way of example, he defended an executive of an international company in a criminal antitrust trial that ended in a verdict of Not Guilty as to all counts. The trial was held in federal court in Charlotte, North Carolina and was a result of a wide ranging, 3-year Department of Justice investigation into alleged price-fixing in the polyester staple fiber industry. This high profile trial was closely followed by the textile industry, the media, and dozens of litigants and their counsel who were involved in numerous multi-million dollar class action lawsuits.
