Attorney News

Heather Nyong’o has been named to Global Competition Review (GCR)’s Women in Antitrust 2021 list.

The sixth edition of Women in Antitrust celebrates more than 130 female private practitioners, enforcers, in-house counsel, economists and academics who deserve recognition for their standout careers. The publication acknowledges the dedicated and passionate women who have contributed to the field throughout their careers, nationally and internationally.

In her profile, Nyong’o said she is grateful for her diverse professional experience. “While I thought my days leading high-profile criminal antitrust matters as a US Department of Justice prosecutor could not be topped, little did I know that the greatest and most career-defining experience came in my work as a defense lawyer,” said Nyong’o.

In the nearly 20 years of practicing in the field, Nyong’o said she has only seen “incremental change.” Furthermore, she said, “I think the demands of judges – particularly in the multidistrict litigation lead plaintiff lawyer representation space – and the requirements of clients for more lead female lawyers will be the impetus needed to truly effect change in our field.”
