Nicola Boyle of Hausfeld's London office, Melinda Coolidge of Hausfeld's Washington, DC office, and Megan Jones of Hausfeld's San Francisco office are among the top private practitioners highlighted by GCR's Women in Antitrust 2016 - as the publication highlights private practitioners, enforcers, in-house counsel, economists, and academics.
In the GCR feature, the award recipients answer questions about their practice, advice to women starting their legal careers, and what brings fulfilment at work. Melinda Coolidge noted in her interview with GCR: "I was drawn to this line of work from a justice angle. Antitrust wrongs can be a bit cerebral, but at their heart, these violations involve businesses in literal conspiracies to overcharge their customers. The cartels we bring cases against have typically caused millions, if not billions, of dollars of damage." Megan Jones noted: "One of the greatest successes in my career is choosing to follow my mentor and start a law firm with Michael Hausfeld. . . .To women just starting out in antitrust today, I would encourage them to say yes to every opportunity that comes their way."
The GCR Women in Antitrust 2016 highlights those who have been at the forefront of competition law in their respective jurisdictions and made groundbreaking contributions to the ever-changing, increasingly globalized competition landscape. Please visit here to access the full list of honorees.
