Overview

Guy V. Amoresano has more than 25 years experience litigating and trying cases in state and federal courts. A former Adjunct Professor of Antitrust Law at Seton Hall Law School, he is recognized for the depth of his experience in antitrust litigation on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, having litigated antitrust matters in industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals, heavy equipment, securities trading, insurance, and more. Beyond the antitrust arena, Mr. Amoresano also brings considerable experience to bear in general business disputes of all descriptions, construction litigation, and complex litigation against the insiders of insolvent enterprises.

FOCUS AREAS

The particular antitrust issues that Mr. Amoresano has litigated include, among others:

  • Competitive issues arising from the use of exclusive distributors by a dominant seller
  • Allegations of tying or monopolization arising from the use of a bundled discount pricing strategy in the pharmaceutical industry
  • Issues arising out of the activities of trade organizations
  • Alleged international price fixing cartels
  • Alleged unlawful agreements among securities market makers

By way of recent examples, Mr. Amoresano was involved in the successful defense of a pharmaceutical company against a class action complaint alleging antitrust claims arising out of a bundled discount pricing strategy. The court’s dismissal of the complaint involved endorsing the firm’s argument on an issue of first impression in the district concerning the measure of damages in a tying case. In another recent matter, this time representing an antitrust claimant, he successfully dealt with the Federal Trade Commission, resulting in that agency taking action against a dominant firm that our client contended was excluding new rivals from necessary channels of distribution.

Outside the antitrust arena, Mr. Amoresano has been involved in complex litigation of every description, including multiple cases on behalf of creditors or trusts seeking to recover from corporate insiders of insolvent enterprises for fraud or other wrongs. In addition to financial and business tort cases of this type, Mr. Amoresano has experience in the area of construction litigation, having engaged in protracted litigation over a significantly delayed New Jersey bridge project.
