GCR Names Haidee Schwartz Among Standout Women in Antitrust
(Washington, D.C.) – Akin Gump antitrust partner Haidee Schwartz has been named among Global Competition Review’s Women in Antitrust.
Now in its sixth edition, the Women in Antitrust series recognizes the “female private practitioners, enforcers, in-house counsel, economists and academics who deserve recognition for their standout careers,” according to the publication.
In her recognition profile, Ms. Schwartz reflects on her tenure as Acting Deputy Director of the Bureau of Competition at the Federal Trade Commission as being among one of the greatest highlights of her career. Regarding her private practice, Ms. Schwartz spoke on her client work, noting that it is “very rewarding when I can help a client navigate an antitrust issue to achieve their business objective, even if it involves a different path than they initially envisioned.”
To conclude, Ms. Schwartz suggested that junior female antitrust lawyers “find good mentors, including women, in antitrust – they don’t have to be at your firm or agency. Devote yourself to learning the law and to developing relationships with your peers across firms, antitrust agencies and clients.”
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 900 lawyers in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
