Gina Cass-Gottlieb, one of Gilbert + Tobin’s market leading competition and regulation partners has been recognised as part of an elite group of the world’s best female legal talent. The report, by legal research firm Acritas features the stars of the legal industry globally and is compiled from more than 10,000 independent client nominations globally.
Cementing Gilbert + Tobin’s outstanding reputation for advising clients on their most significant transactions and home to the best talent in the industry, Gina received the most nominations overall among female lawyers globally.
However, the report also highlighted the need for greater recognition of female talent and eliminating gender bias in the legal industry. From the 8,000 individual lawyers nominated, only 1,000 client recommendations promoted female lawyers, with the data revealing that male clients were half as likely to nominate a female star.
Gilbert + Tobin is committed to achieving gender equality within our own firm and driving broader change in the industry. We have been recognised as an employer of choice for gender equality and continue to lead collective efforts to recognise the contribution and excellence of our many talented female lawyers.
Gina is consistently ranked as one of Australia’s leading competition and regulatory lawyers by Chambers Asia Pacific, Legal 500 Asia Pacific, International Who’s Who of Competition Lawyers and Best Lawyers. Since 2010 Gina has been ranked as a ’Star Individual’ for Competition and Antitrust by Chambers Asia Pacific.
