Norton Rose Fulbright Names New Global Head of Antitrust 

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright announced that its US Head of Antitrust and Competition Robin Adelstein has been named its Global Head of Antitrust and Competition, effective April 1.

The firm’s global antitrust and competition team comprises more than 150 lawyers in 26 countries. The group, also named a top four Global Elite practice for mergers by GCR, advises on all aspects of antitrust law, including multinational mergers and clearances, cartels, abuse of dominance and monopolization, international investigations, compliance, and antitrust litigation.

Adelstein succeeds Peter Scott, who recently became Norton Rose Fulbright’s Europe, Middle East, and Asia (EMEA) Managing Partner. Based in New York and Washington, DC, she will retain her US leadership responsibilities. She came to the firm five years ago after serving as North American General Counsel of the Sandoz division of Novartis, one of the world’s largest healthcare companies, and previously served in in-house antitrust and litigation roles at Novartis and Diageo, a global leader in premium drinks.

Scott, who had served as Norton Rose Fulbright’s Global Head of Antitrust and Competition since 2016, said, “Robin is a dynamic and talented lawyer who will continue to build our global antitrust and competition offering to clients. Her in-house experience with leading corporations gives her a particular understanding into how companies work on a global scale. We have a fantastic global group of skilled practitioners helping companies to navigate antitrust issues across the world.”
