Former Slaughter and May partner Laura Carstensen has joined magic circle firm Linklaters as a consultant in the competition and antitrust practice
Former Slaughter and May ;partner ;Laura Carstensen has joined magic circle firm Linklaters as a consultant in the competition and antitrust practice.
Carstensen left Slaughters in 2004 to become a reporting panel member at the Competition Commission. She will retain that post despite her new role at Linklaters, meaning she will not be involved in client advisory work at the firm.
Linklaters competition head Michael Cutting said having Carstensen on board would make a huge contribution to the team's strategy and business development.
"At a time when antitrust policy continues to develop and enforcement activity is intensifying, Laura's breadth and depth of experience at the cutting edge of competition law will prove invaluable," said Cutting.
Carstensen, who was a partner at Slaughters for 10 years, has more than 20 years' experience of EU and UK competition law.
