Biography

August Horvath, a partner in Foley Hoag's Advertising & Marketing practice, is a noted advertising and antitrust attorney. He counsels clients on how to substantiate and defend marketing claims they wish to make for their products and services, helps them challenge false and disparaging advertising by their competitors, and assists them in managing relationships with competitors, customers and suppliers without running afoul of antitrust laws.

August provides representation in private false advertising and deceptive practices litigation before the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), state Attorneys General and the National Advertising Division (NAD) of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, and litigates in courts across the country. He has helped many companies in fields such as pharmaceuticals, retailing, sporting and other consumer goods, and online Internet services reach their marketing, distribution and competitive goals while overcoming complex challenges of advertising law and antitrust barriers.

August’s antitrust experience includes litigating both civil and criminal cases before the Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division; FTC investigations and litigation related to conduct and mergers and acquisitions; and private litigation, including class actions with millions of class members. He also counsels clients in establishing marketing programs and distribution arrangements that comply with advertising and antitrust laws and regulations from the outset of their marketing plan development. August’s Ph.D. and hands-on experience in survey research and statistical analysis give him exceptional insight into developing substantiation protocols, designing and assessing research into the implied meaning of advertising claims, and working with and against expert witnesses.

August has been listed among premier attorneys in the U.S. Legal 500 and New York Super Lawyers. A fellow of the American Bar Foundation, he serves as co-chair of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law, Agriculture and Food Committee.
