What We Do


Site Tools

Our team of dedicated Antitrust lawyers in Belgium, France, Germany, the UK and the US offers clients seamless legal advice on government investigations and enforcement actions in today’s borderless landscape.  From mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures, private antitrust litigation, and cartels to antitrust compliance and counseling, clients trust us to guide them through their most critical and complex antitrust matters.  Our vast experience and presence in key antitrust jurisdictions are integral assets in providing a coordinated strategy in multinational transactions and investigations.

For example:

We advised Ardagh on the financing and antitrust aspects of its $1.7 billion agreement to buy Verallia North America from Compagnie de Saint-Gobain. This was one of the most hotly contested mergers cases in the US in 2013.

“I particularly enjoy the collaborative nature of our Antitrust practice. Each transaction presents a fresh opportunity to dive into a client's industry, then work with a broad range of individuals, from business people, to my colleagues across various offices and practice areas, to economic and industry experts.”
