Welcome to the 2018 edition of the GCR 100, our comprehensive listing of the world’s top competition practices. For the 18th year, the GCR 100 provides a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the law firms and economic consultancies doing the most important antitrust work around the world.
Compiled by Global Competition Review’s editorial staff, this publication covers more than 300 firms from every inhabited continent and the Global Elite spotlights the top 25 global competition practices. It also includes the Economics 20, which offers a picture of the world’s leading consultancies for antitrust economics advice.
This year we feature firms in 50 jurisdictions, ranging from those with long-standing antitrust laws such as the US and Canada to the rapidly maturing competition regimes in China and India. Firms’ rankings are based on our periodic country surveys, in which GCR’s reporters meet leading antitrust practitioners and top enforcement officials on the ground to better understand the state of competition law in a given jurisdiction.
We hope that the GCR 100 remains not only a practical resource for in-house counsel or law firms looking to refer work or build contacts, but also a source of inspiration for what demonstrates quality in competition practices.
