Arnold & Porter Partners Profiled in Global Competition Review's 2013 Women in Antitrust Report
Washington, D.C.; Brussels, March 27, 2013 -- Three Arnold & Porter partners were included in the Global Competition Review's 2013 Women in Antitrust report, which profiles 100 successful women in the field of competition law. The firm's attorneys profiled were Debbie Feinstein, a 25-year antitrust veteran who is co-head of the firm's Antitrust/Competition practice resident in Washington, D.C.; Marleen Van Kerckhove, a 25-year practitioner who is also co-head of the firm's Antitrust/Competition practice and resident in Brussels; and Annette Schild, another Brussels Antitrust/Competition partner who has similarly practiced for over 20 years.
The profiled women attorneys were selected from numerous jurisdictions and were based on the GCR's past editorial research. Each profiled attorney was asked a series of questions about their work, developments in the field, and how being a woman has colored their career.
Ms. Feinstein noted how antitrust practitioners are invariably forward-looking, focusing on "what will happen in the future based on a variety of facts, economic evidence, and theories." Ms. Van Kerckhove remarked how the most rewarding part of her career has been "seeing young lawyers grow into the next generation's successful practitioners and knowing that you have in some way contributed to this process." Meanwhile, Ms. Schild predicted that antitrust lawyers in dealing with new markets are going to experience "ever more complex economic models and an increasing number of jurisdictions that may have similar sounding laws but interpret them in ways reflecting their own legal and economic system."
