The nomination period is now open for the next edition of 40 Under 40, a special publication of GCR profiling 40 of the world’s top antitrust and competition specialists who are under the age of 40.
Starting today, we invite companies, law firms, economic consultancies, enforcement agencies and academic institutions to submit information about the brightest young minds in the antitrust world.
Last published in 2016, our 40 Under 40 survey has profiled antitrust specialists who have gone on to become some of the most prominent and respected in the competition law community.
The 2016 edition included Amanda Reeves, now co-chair of Latham and Watkins’s global antitrust practice; Sheldon Mills, now director of competition at the Financial Conduct Authority; Ian Conner, now deputy director of the US Federal Trade Commission’s bureau of competition; Carlos Mena-Labarthe, now a partner at Creel García-Cuéllar Aiza y Enríquez; Kentaro Hirayama, now the founder of a Japanese competition law boutique; and many others who hold prominent positions in firms and governments around the world.
Ana Paula Martinez, who appeared in the 2012 and 2016 editions of 40 Under 40, remains eligible for the 2020 publication. But most of the lawyers and economists featured in 2016 are no longer under 40.
So we need your help to identify the best and brightest young antitrust practitioners poised to become fixtures in the antitrust community for years to come.
All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the person’s name, birthdate, place of employment and a brief description of their work history. Those who turned 40 on or before 31 August 2019 are not eligible to be included in this edition.
The deadline for nominations is 1 October 2019.
After the nomination deadline, we will reach out to those selected for additional information and photographs.
We look forward to receiving your nominations.
