Allen & Overy again ranked in Global Elite for antitrust and competition
26 January 2016
Allen & Overy has been included in the GCR Global Elite, an independent guide to the top 25 competition practices in the world, at number six in the ranking.
Published by Global Competition Review, the Global Elite is part of the GCR 100, an annual guide to the most trusted firms for competition work. The guide analyses over 300 competition practices across the globe. The 25 firms included in the Global Elite are those that perform consistently well on a global stage, taking on the most difficult and contentious antitrust cases. The GCR Global Elite uses objective criteria to rank the firms – including the nature of the antitrust work they’re taking on, the jurisdictions they appear in, as well as the number of leading figures at a firm, and the stability of the firm’s antitrust practice.
This year the Global Elite includes three rankings specific to antitrust practices – mergers, cartels and private litigation.
Elaine Johnston, co-head of the global Antitrust practice, said: “We’re honoured to be recognised as a premier law firm for global antitrust and competition work. This is testimony to the high-quality client service we strive to provide and the talent of the A&O team.”
Allen & Overy's Antitrust and Competition team comprises over 100 specialists located across Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
