Edelson Lechtzin LLP is investigating whether Altria Group, Inc. and Juul Labs, Inc. violated federal antitrust laws concerning anticompetitive agreements entered into between them in which Altria agreed to refrain from competing against Juul in the United States market for closed-system electronic cigarettes in return for a substantial ownership interest in Juul. By these agreements, Altria and Juul agreed to divide and allocate the market for e-cigarettes. As a direct result of this conduct, prices for e-cigarettes have been raised, fixed and stabilized at artificial levels.
If you are a consumer or business that has purchased e-cigarette products directly from either Altria or Juul after December 7, 2018 you may have suffered economic damages. Please complete the form below or contact us at 215-867-2399 to discuss what legal rights you may have.
