Operating at the European Union’s political and legislative center, O’Melveny’s Brussels office focuses on EU and national competition law, as well as trade and sector regulation. Our lawyers are qualified in key Member States, have in-depth experience and knowledge of national laws and procedures, speak local languages, know the national authorities, and are accustomed to coordinating complex cross-border projects in the EU and beyond.
Collaborating closely with our O'Melveny colleagues in Europe and Asia, we routinely represent clients before antitrust and competition agencies around the world. Our antitrust and competition lawyers include former high-ranking regulators who maintain close contact with enforcement agencies, providing clients with invaluable insights into governmental decision-making processes and agendas. We also advise clients on the transnational implications of deals—a critical aspect of international business as antitrust authorities around the world conduct parallel merger inquiries and investigations.
Since it opened in 2004, our Brussels office has been involved in a series of high-profile cases covering all main areas of EU competition law (Article 102, mergers, and cartel cases), achieving headline-grabbing results for our clients. We also represent clients in criminal proceedings; treble damages and class actions; appearances before regulatory bodies including European Commission oral hearings; and judicial review in the EU Courts.
