Suzanne M. Dallimore is a top-rated trial attorney with thirty-one years in the trenches of hard-fought complex commercial litigation and trials in years' experience as a prosecutor and plaintiff’s trial lawyer in civil and criminal antitrust, complex commercial litigation, fraud, securities fraud and public corruption. Suzanne has an unusual history of successful bench and jury antitrust civil and criminal trial experience, both in private practice and as Chief Antitrust Counsel for Utah and Arizona Attorneys General. Suzanne has extensive lecture and teaching experience within government, having conducted many antitrust, public integrity, competition and public contracting training in two states. Suzanne has been commended for her antitrust successes by the United States Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, the Federal Trade Commission, Bureau of Competition, and by Attorneys General in Utah and Arizona. Suzanne has tried dozens of jury trials in state and federal courts, and has been fortunate enough to win them all.

Suzanne graduated Order of the Coif from the University of Utah College of Law in 1977, and was in private practice before becoming Antitrust Chief Counsel for the Utah Attorney General in 1982. During her tenure there, Suzanne tried the first bid-rigging, antitrust and commercial bribery case in Utah, convicting all defendants charged.

In 1991, Suzanne became Antitrust Chief for Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods. While there, she focused on many industries, including health care. In 1995, Suzanne achieved a novel victory, stopping a dental antitrust price-fixing cartel, for which she was personally commended by Ann Bingamen, then Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust, Department of Justice

Suzanne’s philosophy is that fair competition and a leveling of the economic playing field for all participants is essential to the economic future of our country. She believes that every player in free markets is critical to the delivery of efficient, quality goods and services. Suzanne also believes that free market forces can and should be brought to bear to solve the difficult issues facing business and industry today. To that end, Suzanne’s practice focuses on consulting with market players and their counsel to facilitate innovation within the bounds of antitrust law. Laws and policies that remove competition lead to inefficient, institutional and bureaucratic practices that create administrative inefficiencies which negatively impact competition and the market participants. Suzanne is a pragmatic advisor, looking for market based solutions to problems, rather than government-imposed solutions. Creative solutions that foster innovation and do not unduly burden competitors so as to minimize conflicts and litigation are the best answers.
