Who's Who Legal Competition: Future Leaders - Partners

Clara Ingen-Housz has been a partner in Linklaters’ global competition practice since 2013, based in Hong Kong. She leads Linklaters’ Asia competition practice.

Her experience spans three continents. In Europe, she was a member of the European Commission’s Competition Department of the Legal Service, advising on and litigating cartel cases in various industries. In the US, she practised for almost 10 years at top-tier New York firms, focusing on US merger control and private antitrust litigation.

Based in Asia for seven years, Clara has developed a strong regional competition practice with specific expertise in Hong Kong and China. She advises multinational companies on Asian competition law issues, and Asian companies on global antitrust matters. She has been involved in transactions and investigations in jurisdictions including Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Korea, Taiwan, and Australia.

She was appointed by the Hong Kong Competition Commission as one of the first non-governmental advisers to the ICN, and has taken an active role in debates leading up to the adoption of the ordinance and its guidelines. Clara authored the first textbook on Hong Kong competition law.

She graduated from Harvard Law School, Paris Law School (Assas) and Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris. She is qualified in Paris (omitted), New York and Hong Kong.

Linklaters is an international law firm with offices throughout the world. Linklaters’ competition practice is made up of over 150 lawyers based across Europe, the USA and Asia. Our competition lawyers provide advice and assistance on all aspects of competition law and have successfully represented clients in their dealings with competition agencies and in antitrust litigation.
