Research and rankings

GCR publishes independent, renowned signature rankings including the GCR 100 and Rating Enforcement.

The GCR 100: a guide to the world's leading competition law and economics practices provides readers with extensive qualitative analysis of antitrust groups in jurisdictions around the world.

Rating Enforcement: the annual ranking of the world's leading competition authorities provides an extensive evaluation of their performance and how they compare with each other.


GCR Live was established to bring the news-and-views of GCR to a live event. We hold events throughout the year in various jurisdictions on the key issues in competition law, bringing together speakers and delegates from in-house, private practice, government agencies and economic consultancies, for practical advice and the opportunity to hear directly from national competition authorities and the European Commission. Regular Q&A sessions, case studies and symposiums allow delegate interaction.

Insight: Reviews, Guides, Know-how and Handbooks

GCR publishes three annual reviews that deliver expert-written specialist intelligence and research on the Americas, Europe and the African, Middle Eastern and Asia-Pacific regions to help readers navigate the world's increasingly complex competition regimes.

Insight also publishes in-depth Guides on topics such as e-commerce, energy market manipulation and merger remedies, providing all the critical need-to-know information for the layman and experienced practitioner alike.

Know-how is a quick reference tool where practitioners submit answers to questions on specific topics in their region. The reader can then select jurisdictions and questions to quickly compare legal differences on topics within competition.

GCR also publishes two annual handbooks: The Handbook of Competition Economics, which provides unique insight into and analysis of current and future competition economics trends, and The Handbook of Competition Enforcement Agencies, which provides key contacts and a Q&A with over 80 competition authorities, as well as unique insight into contemporary enforcement from private practice lawyers.

Published by Law Business Research Limited – an independent, multi award-winning publisher of research, data and analysis on international business law and international legal markets.
