The 2017 Who’s Who Legal – Future Leaders survey has just been announced and features 9 Baker McKenzie lawyers for Competition Law. Partners Nick Altini (South Africa), Gavin Bushell (Belgium), Mochamad Fachri (Indonesia), Christian Horstkotte (Germany), Nicolas Kredel (Germany) and Francesca Richmond (UK) were named as leaders in the Partner category, while Angelica Navarro Acevedo (Colombia), James Robinson (UK) and Alexandros Stratakis (UK) received recognition as leaders in the Non-Partner category.
The survey, conducted by Who’s Who Legal in conjunction with Global Competition Review, was based on feedback by both clients and competition lawyers in other firms. In particular, Gavin Bushell was highlighted in the Partner survey for his “energy and effective advocacy”. One respondent claimed, “He thinks strategically when marshalling the details of the case and is able to clearly articulate his views in a compelling manner.”
The number of lawyers featured in the 2017 Future Leaders Survey reinforces the strength of Baker McKenzie’s Global Antitrust & Competition Group and the reputation of its practitioners in the 43 jurisdictions around the world with dedicated antitrust and competition law teams. Earlier this year Baker McKenzie was named in the “Top 5 Global Elite” by Global Competition Review.
