Citation Counts for Chambers Ranked US Antitrust Practitioners - DC Ranked Practitioners

A Chambers ranking suggests excellence in the field for antitrust (and other areas of practice).  The skill set for Chambers inclusion is not necessarily the same as for being a "thought leader" in academic circles.  Which Chambers USA ranked antitrust practitioners have the greatest academic credibility in terms of citations counts (using the westlaw JLR database)?  Note that citations are probably higher for former senior government officials as they may get mentioned in articles for policy initiatives divorced from their writing. More experienced practitioners (I am not going to use the word "old") also should have a longer trail of citations.

This week we start with the largest Chambers ranked group - DC.
