Four White & Case lawyers have won 2015 Antitrust Writing Awards, conferred by the Institute of Competition Law and announced in its journal, Concurrences.

J. Mark Gidley and Max Hyman (Washington, DC) were awarded Best Procedure Academic Article for "The Emergence of Due Process Following the Growth of International Antitrust Enforcement," published in Antitrust in Developing and Emerging Countries-Conference Papers, 2nd Edition.

Mark Powell (Brussels) and Stratigoula Sakellariou-Witt (Brussels/Frankfurt) were awarded Best Cross-Border Business Article for "Lessons to keep in mind for your next complex global deal," published by White & Case and by Transaction Advisors.

Organized by Concurrences and George Washington University Law School Competition Law Center, the annual Antitrust Writing Awards promote competition scholarship and contribute to competition advocacy, according to Concurrences.

Gidley chairs the White & Case Global Antitrust/Competition practice, which is the only such practice to have been named Competition Group of the Year for the past five years by Law360. His practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, cartel cases, class actions, and pharmaceutical antitrust cases, with an emphasis on trying antitrust cases.

Powell has been advising clients on competition law issues for more than 25 years. His practice has a particular focus on the interface between competition law and sector-specific regulatory requirements, in such areas as telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, energy, the media and transport.

Sakellariou-Witt advises on European competition law and general European Union law questions. She represents clients in merger control reviews, abuse of dominance and cartel proceedings, and has advised companies active in a broad range of industries, including IT, telecommunications, consumer goods, consumer electronics, pharmaceuticals, energy, chemicals, oil & gas and transport.

Hyman specializes in complex trial and appellate litigation before federal courts. His practice focuses on defending foreign sovereigns and international organizations in US litigations and representing companies in antitrust cartel investigations.
