What’s this literary term?

Dave DuVall 2 Rep.

“His father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys.”

I can’t figure out the literary term

This sentence has used antithesis, where two contrasting ideas are juxtaposed in a parallel and balanced way. Like here, his father prefers his company to some men, whereas he prefers the same company to some other guys, both ideas are contrasting but balanced too.
