Hogan Lovells Is Most Improved in GCR's Annual Top Ten List of Global Elite Competition Practices
01 February 2012
1 February 2012 – Hogan Lovells announced today that its Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation (ACER) practice was named by Global Competition Review (GCR) magazine among the top ten Global Elite practices in its annual GCR 100 list, moving up four places in 2012 to the number six position.
“We were delighted that our practice was recognized as a top-ten leader in the world last year, and this year’s upward movement among the Global Elite ranking is an excellent illustration of the growing strength of our international platform,” said London-based Susan Bright, global Co-Head of Hogan Lovells’ ACER practice.
“Our recent slate of victories for clients, and recognitions such as this one and our partners’ strong showing in The International Who’s Who of Competition Lawyers and Economists reflects the strength and breadth of our capabilities in advising clients across the globe,” said Washington, D.C.-based Janet McDavid, global Co-Head of Hogan Lovells’ ACER practice.
The twelfth edition of the GCR 100, a global qualitative analysis of the leading law and economics practices worldwide, profiles law firms in 41 jurisdictions around the world. The Global Elite are “the international superstars of the competition bar,” according to GCR. “The team at Hogan Lovells has climbed our board more than any other this year, jumping four places, from tenth to sixth, on the backs of an impressive showing in multiple jurisdictions in the firm’s second year post-merger,” GCR wrote. The magazine further observed, “The team at Hogan Lovells has, post-merger, transformed from two separate and very good antitrust groups to a true global competition law―certainly among the deepest and most talented practice groups anywhere.”
