Hogan Lovells' Antitrust and Competition Practice Named Top Five in the World
13 December 2012
13 DECEMBER 2012 – Hogan Lovells has been ranked fifth in this year's Global Competition Review (GCR) Global Elite – confirming the firm's place as one of the world's top five antitrust and competition practices.
The firm's antitrust and competition practice was lauded in the 13th edition of the GCR 100 for its "high-level" work such as the successful win for clients Safeway and Morrisons in the UK Office of Fair Trading (OFT) tobacco cartel case and work for Ariba in its US$4.3 billion acquisition by SAP.
GCR is the leading global competition law publication and the GCR Global Elite is the definitive list of the world's top firms for antitrust/competition. The Global Elite assesses antitrust/competition practices based on the size of a firm's practice; the number and location of nominees in The International Who's Who of Competition Lawyers; and the stability of the practice, measured by looking at lateral hires, partner departures and promotions throughout the year.
Susan Bright, London based co-head of the Hogan Lovells Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice, said:
"Our ranking is testament to the hard work and team spirit of the group and reflects the strength, breadth and fast-growing reputation of our global antitrust/competition practice."
Janet McDavid, Washington, D.C. based co-head of the Hogan Lovells Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice, added:
"We are delighted that Global Competition Review ranks our global practice amongst the top five worldwide. This is an excellent recognition of the quality of people we have in our practice and reflective of the high-profile work we undertake."
