WWL has once again collaborated with Global Competition Review to produce the 20th edition of WWL: Competition, featuring 1,068 lawyers from over 400 firms across 55 jurisdictions who stand out as the foremost legal practitioners in the competition space. We also identify 79 state aid specialists for their market-leading expertise in the area.
Those featured are recognised for their exceptional work on a spectrum of related matters including merger control, abuse of dominance cases, cartel investigations, state aid matters and high-stakes antitrust litigation.
Below we recognise the top lawyers and firms across a range of jurisdictions.
For the sixth year, WWL highlights the world’s best plaintiff litigators in competition. The USA remains the main arena for such work but there is an increasing caseload in Europe. In total 126 names are recommended this year.
WWL has once again identified the leading competition economists from around the world. This year we recognise 397 individuals from 160 firms across 33 jurisdictions for their world-class work providing expert knowledge and testimony in complex antitrust matters.
In this edition, WWL presents the future leaders of international competition practice. This year, 288 partners and 250 non-partners aged 45 and under at the end of 2019 are selected. They have proven their excellence in a wide range of behavioural and civil competition matters, acting for clients in a huge spectrum of sectors.
WWL presents 55 economists regarded by peers and clients as future leaders in the competition space. They have been selected from over 30 firms and across 16 different countries for their experience and expertise in providing expert testimony and advisory services regarding antitrust and competition matters.
