Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, a leading counselor to global financial institutions and corporations, announced today that Antitrust special counsel Amy W. Ray was named to Global Competition Review’s (GCR) “40 Under 40” list.
GCR, a leading competition law publication, undertakes its survey approximately every five years to identify the world’s most talented antitrust and competition lawyers under 40. More than 1,000 nominations were received by GCR, and the final list was selected based on votes from prominent competition lawyers and economists throughout the world.
Ray represents clients in high-profile U.S. and international antitrust matters. She focuses on transactions, litigation, arbitration and investigations with a competition nexus. Among her notable representations are matters at the intersection of antitrust and technology, including her key role in Microsoft Corporation's acquisition of Skype (winner of GCR’s “Merger Control Matter of the Year – Europe” in 2012), and in the clearance of numerous intellectual property acquisitions.
Cadwalader’s Antitrust practice comprises more than 30 full-time antitrust attorneys in Washington, D.C., New York and Brussels, but also can draw on more than 100 other Cadwalader litigators to staff major matters. The Antitrust Group has received numerous accolades for its work by various organizations, including securing awards for Antitrust matter of the year for three of the last four years from GCR, and the award for Antitrust practice of the year by Benchmark Litigation in 2014. The team includes several attorneys who formerly held high-level positions with the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. Cadwalader’s Antitrust Group also has a significant, and growing, practice in Asia, with offices in Beijing and Hong Kong.
