“Anna is a very well regarded and top-tier competition professional”, said UK Head of Competition, Duncan Liddell. He added: “Post Brexit, the Competition & Markets Authority has continued to expand its activities as a leading global antitrust regulator alongside the DoJ and EU. Anna’s appointment therefore comes at a critical and exciting time, and her strong background in competition investigations, which plays to our existing areas of strength, as well as her expertise in handling big-ticket competition damages claims, means we are well placed to accelerate growth in this area. She will be a great asset to the firm and we look forward to welcoming her to Ashurst.”
