The Joseph Saveri Law Firm is litigating and investigating an alleged anticompetitive conspiracy involving manufacturers of inductors, a widely-used passive electronic component.  The investigation indicates, and the complaint alleges, that inductor manufacturers unlawfully agreed to fix the price of inductors shipped or invoiced to U.S. purchasers.

The firm has developed information indicating that certain inductors manufacturers conspired and successfully inflated the price of electronic inductors from approximately 2002 through 2015, in violation of federal and state antitrust laws, including Section 1 of the Sherman Antitrust Act.  As a result, on February 8, 2018, the firm filed a Class Action Complaint in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of Plaintiff Five Rivers Electronic Innovations, LLC against Defendants Kemet, Murata, TOKO, Okaya, Panasonic, SANYO, Sumida, Taiyo Yuden, TDK, TOKIN, and Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA).

The firm has substantial expertise and experience litigating price-fixing and other antitrust violations by passive electronic components manufacturers, including capacitors and resistors.  The firm currently serves as court-appointed interim lead class counsel for the direct purchasers in In re Capacitors Antitrust Litigation.

Please contact the firm if:

  • You purchased electronic inductors between 2002 through 2015 directly from any inductor manufacturer;
  • You know facts regarding potential claimants who purchased electronic inductors from 1999 through 2015;
