ACER’s Future is Getting Brighter

6 June 2018 - Who’s Who Legal (WWL) recently released its Future Leaders for Competition listing and it features seven of our antitrust and competition rising stars. Partners Angus Coulter (London), Katie Hellings (Washington),  Mark Jones (London), Eric Paroche (Paris), Leigh Oliver (Washington), Falk Schöning (Brussels), Christoph Wünschmann (Munich) were named as leaders in the Partner category, while Paul Chaplin (London), Gianni De Stefano (Brussels), Christian Ritz (Munich), and Clemens Ziegler (Brussels) were recognized as leaders in the Non-Partner category.

De Stefano was ranked among the Top 5 ‘Most Highly Regarded’ in Europe amongst the non-partners. WWL notes that “The ‘really excellent’ Gianni De Stefano at Hogan Lovells is one of the most highly regarded practitioners in our research. According to peers, De Stefano is “a delighted to work with” and praises his “amazing energy” and “fantastic analytical skills.”

Leigh Oliver is recognized among ‘Other Leading Individuals’ in the United States. Sources say Oliver is “a wonderful lawyer” and “widely considered to be an expert in merger defence work in the healthcare sector.” WWL notes that Oliver is “recommended for being ‘very sharp, articulate and client-friendly.’”

The Future Leaders survey, conducted by WWL in conjunction with Global Competition Review (GCR), was based on feedback from both clients and peers. Future Leaders focuses on those lawyers widely acknowledged to be up-and-comers, aged 45 or under.

This recognition continues to cement Hogan Lovells’ place and reputation among the preeminent global antitrust firms. Earlier this year, Hogan Lovells was recognized by GCR for its work on the air cargo claims for Air Canada, which won the “Litigation of the Year – Cartel Defence” award.
