Women in Antitrust 2016: Private Practitioners

30 November 2016

Global Competition Review is pleased to present Women in Antitrust 2016, marking the first time we have profiled 150 private practitioners, in-house counsel, enforcers, economists and academics.

This week we recognise nearly 100 remarkable women at the helm of law firms' competition practices around the world. Some have attained global recognition for their work, while others have achieved excellence and antitrust fame in their respective countries.

Many of this year’s entrants appear in our survey for the first time. Others have featured in past editions of Women in Antitrust. To name a few, Rachel Brandenburger, Ilene Knable Gotts and Deirdre Trapp were profiled in our first-ever survey in 1999, while Catriona Hatton, Elaine Johnston and Romina Polley were first featured in 2004. Since then, these women – among others – have only added to their antitrust legacies.

The bulk of the entrants practise within the US, the European Union, and other established competition regimes. The 2016 edition also features several women breaking ground in jurisdictions newer to antitrust laws – including Joyce Karanja-Ng’ang’a in Kenya, Faizah Jamaludin in Malaysia, and Manuela Guia in Romania.

It was impossible to include every woman worthy of recognition, but we endeavoured to highlight those at the forefront of the field, or who have acted on some of the precedent-setting antitrust cases across industries.

Throughout the month of November we have also published this survey’s lists for corporate counselenforcerseconomists and academics.

Instead of traditional biographies, we asked all of these leading women to tell us about themselves, and their lives as both women and antitrust professionals. Thank you to everyone who took part.
