Cleary Gottlieb Receives Two Institute of Competition Law Antitrust Writing Awards and Wins Best Newsletter

April 15, 2015

Two articles authored by Cleary Gottlieb lawyers won Institute of Competition Law Antitrust Writing Awards in this annual competition. The firm was also top-ranked in the Institute’s Antitrust Newsletters Ranking, for the second consecutive year. The awards were announced at the Institute’s awards dinner on April 14, 2015 in Washington, DC.

Maurits Dolmans’ article, “Privateers and Trolls Join the Global Patent Wars; Can Competition Authorities Disarm Them?” was selected as “Best Antitrust Business Article” in the Intellectual Property category. Nicholas Levy’s article, “Expanding EU Merger Control to Non-Controlling Minority Shareholdings: A Sledgehammer to Crack a Nut?” was selected as “Best Antitrust Business Article” in the Mergers category.

Cleary Gottlieb had seven shortlisted articles, considerably more than any other law firm. The short list was selected by the Awards’ Steering Committee and online reader votes. Winners in each category were chosen by the Awards’ Board comprised of: Douglas Ginsburg (Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit; George Mason University Adjunct Professor), Alexander Italianer (DG Competition Director-General), Frédéric Jenny (OECD Competition Committee Chairman), William Kovacic (George Washington University Law School Professor; former FTC Chairman), Howard Shelanski (Georgetown University Professor) and Joshua Wright (FTC Commissioner; George Mason University School of Law Professor).
