2009 GCR 100 is Out

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

For those interested in global rankings of best competition practices, the annual GCR 100 is now out.  Their top 10 firms in competition/antitrust law:

1. Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
2. Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP
3. Howrey LLP
4. Slaughter and May Working Group
5. Linklaters
6. Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP
7. Arnold & Porter LLP
8. Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP
9. Allen & Overy LLP
10. Latham & Watkins LLP

My own thought on the rankings is that it is difficult to rank a firm in the top 10 in the world unless you have a serious practice in both Brussels and Washington, let alone no practice in at least one of these cities.  I give the GCR lots of credit because most of the firms in their list did not take out advertisements.  This suggests that there is no self interest on the part of GCR in terms of gaming the rankings on their part in favor of potential advertizers.
