ACER’s future is getting brighter

7 June 2017 - Who’s Who Legal recently released its inaugural Future Leaders for Competition listing and it features seven of our antitrust and competition rising stars. Partners Logan Breed (Washington), Angus Coulter (London), Adrian Emch (Beijing), Mark Jones (London), Leigh Oliver (Washington), and Falk Schöning (Brussels) were named as leaders in the Partner category, while Gianni De Stefano (Brussels) was recognized as a leader in the Non-Partner category.

De Stefano received the top ranking in Brussels amongst the non-partners. One source describes him as “devoted to and passionate about competition law", while another says “he is absolutely one to watch” thanks to his “strong research skills and ability to find pragmatic solutions to problems”.

Breed is listed among the top five ‘Highly Regarded’ in North America. Sources note that he is “a well-known name in the international antitrust arena known for his strength in complex merger control matters” and “particularly impressive when advising on the nexus of antitrust and intellectual property law.”

The Future Leaders survey, conducted by Who’s Who Legal in conjunction with Global Competition Review (GCR), was based on feedback from both clients and peers. Future Leaders focuses on those lawyers widely acknowledged to be up-and-comers, aged 45 or under.

This recognition continues to cement Hogan Lovells’ place and reputation among the preeminent global antitrust firms. Earlier this year, Hogan Lovells was recognized by GCR for its work on the acquisition by AB InBev of its client, SABMiller, which won the “Matter of the Year” award and Who’s Who Future Leader nominee Oliver was awarded “Lawyer of the Year – Under 40”. GCR “Global Elite” edition comments that Hogan Lovells "remains one of the most well-rounded antitrust groups in the world, with a top-10 position in mergers, cartels and litigation".
