Abstract

The Courts have ruled in the past that activities based upon commercial motives are subject to antitrust prohibitions. This article examines how fee schedules for lawyers are in violation of anti-trust laws. Lawyers contend that there are non-commercial reasons for fee schedules. However, the author is not convinced and believes that the courts should declare that fee schedules violate the Sherman Act.
