Global Competition Review (GCR), a leading journal and e-journal in the field, awarded her a Lifetime Achievement Award for her “decades of outstanding contributions to the field of competition law and policy.” Her co-awardees for this inaugural honor include a former Commissioner for Competition in the European Union, a former Director General of the Competition Directorate in the European Union, a former President of the Competition Appeal Court in the UK who was also a judge of the European Court of First Instance, two former U.S. Assistant Attorney Generals in charge of Antitrust, a former Chairman of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and distinguished practitioners.  
GCR based the award on the votes of more than 1,500 of its readers around the world. The award, GCR says, goes to “an individual—in private practice or in government, law or economics—whose career has had a substantial, lasting and transformational impact on competition policy and/or practice.”
