While corporations often share the goals of increasing revenue and maximizing profitability, many businesses neglect an obscure but profitable revenue stream: recoveries from antitrust class action settlements. Companies routinely receive notice of these settlements, but such notices are all too often discarded based on the mistaken belief that the amount of time and effort to file a claim exceeds the amount of any potential recovery.
