- The BCP offers remedies to consumers on various dubious trade practices in private utility services and trade.
- The Nevada antitrust laws prevent illegal behavior by merchants in group boycotting, limiting output, artificial hoarding, price fixations, etc.
- The antitrust laws also prevent companies from merging to eliminate competition or to consolidate market shares.
