Hogan Lovells Earns Top Ranking in PLC Competition Super League
11 February 2011
14 February 2011 – Hogan Lovells announced today that the Antitrust, Competition, and Economic Regulation Practice has been ranked among the top global competition practices by Practical Law Company (PLC) Which Lawyer? in its 2011 Competition Super League. Nineteen Hogan Lovells lawyers were also recommended in 10 jurisdictions.
The league tables are published in the Cross-border Competition Handbook 2011. A new entrant at number eight, Hogan Lovells was noted as "one to watch" owing to its combined experience and reach. Legacy Hogan & Hartson was "highly recommended for its expertise on U.S. antitrust matters and enjoyed strong recognition in Europe." Likewise, legacy Lovells was considered "a consistent competition adviser across the main European jurisdictions."
"Less than a year after the historic creation of Hogan Lovells, our clients and the market are realizing the tremendous value that our platform offers in this area," said Jan McDavid, Co-Head of the Hogan Lovells ACER practice.
Partner Susan Bright, Co-Head of the practice added, "We are very pleased that Practical Law Company has recognized the excellence, depth and experience of our global Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation Practice."
The Super League law firm rankings are based on an independent survey of industry and private practice lawyers. The competition rankings assess legal services, including competition/antitrust, EU competition and EU State aid.
Operating from 15 jurisdictions across the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and Asia, Hogan Lovells' Antitrust, Competition, and Economic Regulation group is one of the largest global competition practices, providing cutting edge service in every major area of antitrust and competition law from significant multinational mergers to cartel cases.
