Nixon Peabody LLP
Fred Nelson is a trial attorney who counsels and represents clients in complex commercial disputes and antitrust litigation in numerous state and federal court venues. Fred is the co-chair of the firm’s Antitrust team.
What do you focus on?
In the area of antitrust, I focus on the defense of claims arising under the Sherman Act and under the California Cartwright Act. I am currently representing Carfax in New York federal district court litigation alleging monopolization and attempted monopolization of the purported U.S. market for vehicle history reports. I recently represented one of the largest forest products companies in the world in the defense of Sherman Act Section 2 monopoly and attempted monopoly claims.
My work also includes complex commercial litigation with experience in many industries including steel, chemical manufacturing, forest products and real estate. I recently represented one of the largest privately owned pest control companies in the world in the successful defense of a class action alleging marketing fraud.
