Based in the heart of Europe for over 30 years, our Brussels office provides global clients with commercially-focused, legal and strategic advice across the full spectrum of competition, regulation and trade issues.

Our competition law team delivers results for clients in the most challenging cases, navigating EU and national competition laws across Europe and globally. We advise across the spectrum of competition law matters, including in relation to merger control, foreign direct investment, cartels and investigations, unilateral conduct, competition litigation, competition compliance, State aid and EU procurement.

Our EU law experts have unparalleled expertise in proceedings before the European Commission and courts across various fields of EU law, having led in numerous high-profile cases. Our team has an excellent understanding of the workings of the EU, drawing on the experience of former secondees, officials and judges at the European Commission and EU courts.

The Brussels office is also the hub of our global international trade and WTO law practice, acting on disputes under the WTO dispute settlement mechanism and advising on market access strategies, sanctions, export controls and trade remedy matters.

We are a co-founding member of the Legal Diversity and Inclusion Alliance (LDIA), underscoring the firm's ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion. LDIA was launched to create a forum for law firms across Belgium to share best practices and drive change through shared commitment. Read more about the firm's commitment to diversity and inclusion here.
