    worth her weight in gold: she is commercial and business-savvy, and knows how to present advice.

    Legal 500 2013

    Merlie Calvert is a EU and UK qualified competition lawyer practising in London as Of Counsel. She has extensive experience in anti-trust matters affecting market leading companies especially and related regulatory/litigation matters. She also has substantial experience in dispute resolution, brand protection, corporate/commercial practice and risk management.

    Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 2012, award-winning Merlie was recruited by leading diamond company De Beers as their first ever competition counsel and rapidly became their Head of Legal Services for the Northern Hemisphere. She successfully steered De Beers through critical antitrust investigations and related class action litigation in the EU, US, UK, South Africa and other jurisdictions. She re-built the group's legal function, was actively involved in the strategic re-organisation of De Beers, developed and managed their international compliance framework and towards the end of her tenure, she sat as Commercial Director on the executive board of De Beers' newly established international marketing business.

    Merlie contributes a valuable business perspective to the Mayer Brown practice and is uncompromising in her pursuit of commercially workable legal outcomes.
