Herbert Smith Freehills

10 January 2017

James Quinney, formerly of the European Commission and UK Department of Trade and Industry in the 1990s, sits at the head of the excellent Herbert Smith Freehills competition practice. The firm remains rare among the Global Elite in that it claims no significant antitrust work in the US. Instead, it centres its antitrust practice in London, Brussels and the Australian cities of Sydney and Melbourne, with an impressive presence across Europe and Asia. Quinney is one of nine attorneys at the firm with past experience at various antitrust authorities, so it is no wonder that Herbert Smith remains a mainstay among the world’s most elite.
