Global Competition Review honors Hausfeld Partners Megan Jones and Reena Gambhir as 2021 ‘Women In Antitrust’
Global Competition Review has named Hausfeld Partners Megan Jones and Reena Gambhir to its prestigious 2021 ‘Women in Antitrust' list, which spotlights “more than 130 female private practitioners, enforcers, in-house counsel, economists and academics who deserve recognition for their standout careers.” For this edition, each nominee has shared a glimpse of their personal background, along with antitrust-specific advice or observations that show why they are considered to be at the top of their game.
In her profile, Megan told Global Competition Review that she was “the daughter of Depression-era parents who definitely impacted my view of how important just plain old hard work is to success. Advice I would give to female lawyers is to avoid using someone else’s map to chart your path. We are in an unprecedented time of change in the law, so don’t let ‘it’s never been done before’ limit what kind of work you want to do and how you want to do it.”
Reena stated that, “though antitrust is still a male-dominated field, clients and courts alike are increasingly recognizing the importance of diversity in legal teams. This is such an exciting time to practice antitrust law and for women to fill more and more leadership roles previously saved for men. Take all the opportunities as they come and don’t be afraid to ask for those that don’t.”
