Antitrust and competition law regulation is one of the fastest growing areas of commercial oversight in the US and also around the world.  More than 120 nations have enacted antitrust and competition law statutes, and many more are currently doing so.  Companies and individuals operating in the US and abroad are facing an expanding network of laws and regulations creating a commercial environment where antitrust and competition law exposure is becoming the norm.  In today's global regulatory arena, apparently routine business practices, new commercial ventures, and seemingly competitive market strategies may entail some level of antitrust risk.  


A.R. Collins Global Antitrust, Competition & Business Law Consulting, is well placed to help you understand the myriad of complex laws which comprise the network of US and global antitrust and competition law enforcement, in order to limit your antitrust exposure.

About Us

A.R. Collins Global Antitrust, Competition & Business Law Consulting was launched by antitrust attorney Alexander Collins with the goal of helping companies and individuals navigate the complicated web of US federal and state antitrust laws, and also the competition laws of other major jurisdictions worldwide.  We aim to provide clients with a one stop shop where they can find clarity and help in addressing antitrust issues that arise in their home jurisdictions, and also competition law hurdles they may face in overseas markets where they have business operations or might have commercial contacts sufficient to subject them to foreign antitrust and competition laws, and related foreign commercial regulations.  

Mr. Collins is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. He earned law degrees from Boston College Law School (JD), King's College, London (LLM with merit), and the City University of Hong Kong (LLM with distinction), where he focused on US antitrust and foreign competition law, international trade law and related commercial regulations in the US, Europe and Asia.


Previously, Mr. Collins practiced law at a global antitrust, business law and commercial litigation law firm based in Washington, D.C. and with offices around the world.  He has represented clients and has also consulted on a range of antitrust, competition and commercial law matters in the US, EU, Asia and Latin America.  He brings to his legal consulting services solid academic credentials plus strong representative and advisory experience covering a broad range antitrust, competition and commercial law matters in the US and in many global jurisdictions.
