Denise Gunter has more than two decades of experience representing clients in a variety of antitrust matters. She represents clients in civil and criminal antitrust litigation and government investigations and advises clients on pricing, distribution, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and Hart-Scott-Rodino premerger notification filings. Though Denise's antitrust experience covers a variety of industries, she has a particular focus on healthcare antitrust matters and regularly advises healthcare providers on antitrust issues affecting their operations. Denise is the author of a chapter of the American Bar Association's Messenger Model Handbook, focused on the so-called "messenger model" utilized by healthcare provider networks to avoid antitrust prohibitions.

In addition to her antitrust experience, Denise has broad-based litigation experience including certificate of need litigation, business disputes, and medical staff litigation.

Denise also serves as the managing partner of Nelson Mullins' Winston-Salem office.
