a fair field and no favor
antiquated An environment in which all who are present or participate are afforded equal conditions and opportunities, having neither handicap nor advantage compared to their peers. All we ask is a fair field and no favor during this trial, being able to present our evidence and arguments without prejudice by judge or jury. Under the capitalist market, in a fair field and no favor, a company must thrive and survive by its own merits.
