GCR FIC: 40 under 40 nominations now open

The nomination period is now open for our inaugural GCR FIC40 under 40 survey, a special publication profiling the next generation of the world's top foreign investment lawyers.

Starting today, GCR invites law firms, economic consultancies, government agencies, academic institutions and companies to nominate the most-talented foreign investment control lawyers under the age of 40.

Launched in September, GCR FIC covers the latest developments in foreign investment control, as growing protectionist policies and global trade tensions cause governments to crack down on deals that threaten their national interests.

The new survey will complement our quadrennial GCR: 40 under 40 supplement, which for several editions has cast the spotlight on individuals that have since become leading figures in the competition law community. The last edition was published in 2020 and featured lawyers, academics and enforcers from six of the world's seven continents.

Now we want your help to identify the best and brightest young foreign investment control lawyers.

All submissions should be sent to [email protected]. Please include in an email the nominee's name, birthdate, place of employment, job title (partner or counsel), and a brief description of their work history and why they deserve to be shortlisted. As in other GCR surveys, please clearly highlight any work that is confidential. Those who turned 40 on or before 31 October 2022 are not eligible for inclusion.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 23 December 2022. We will then reach out to selected candidates for additional information in the new year.

We look forward to receiving your nominations.
