GCR 100 - 17th Edition

Arnold & Porter

10 January 2017

The announcement came after GCR 100 2017’s reporting period – indeed, as the publication went to press. But some of the biggest news for Arnold & Porter in the past year is not of a merger on which it advised, but the firm’s own tie-up with Kaye Scholer. Jonathan Gleklen will remain the chair of the competition group, but is joining forces with Saul Morgenstern, who heads a well-respected antitrust practice in New York. Arnold & Porter’s focus historically has been on the centres of enforcement power in Washington, DC, and Brussels, where it fields experienced ex-enforcers such as Richard Rosen and Peter Levitas, who have held senior positions in both US antitrust agencies, and Luc Gyselen, who formerly led the banking and insurance and then the pharmaceutical, food and agriculture areas for DG Comp.
