Hausfeld LLP Partner Megan Jones Selected for International Honor,

Washington, D.C.  -- Global Competition Review, an international publication, profiled 100 successful women in the field of competition law in its fourth edition of WOMEN IN ANTITRUST. Hausfeld LLP Partner Megan Jones was among those selected for international recognition due to the reputable and distinguished work she has delivered within the field of antitrust. Entrants were based in jurisdictions all over the world and profiled on the developments they have contributed to the field.  Ms. Jones was one of just twenty-three women in the U.S. chosen for this global distinction, and the only private attorney who exclusively works on behalf of victims of cartels.

The profile on Ms. Jones discussed the satisfaction she derives from helping corporations pursue cartel damages. She noted, “As an antitrust attorney, it’s exciting to perform a cartel analysis on a company’s global purchases and reveal to them the overcharges for which they are entitled to compensation in the U.S. and abroad. It can quickly add up to millions of dollars for corporations in some instances.” She also noted, “the pursuit of cartel damages is now viewed as a routine corporate responsibility, and I think rightly so.”
