Brussels: Competition and Antitrust
Marsden Group is leading the way in competition law recruitment, working with the major players in the UK and continental Europe. Our Brussels team is led by Daniela De Nicolo, who has recruited for many years in the Brussels market, and Jonathan Marsden, who was a competition lawyer with Slaughter and May and Clifford Chance in London and Brussels and maintains strong contacts with the leading firms.
Daniela De Nicolo and Jonathan Marsden were recently in Brussels to meet with the top firms. The common message was that the firms remain very busy and are always keen to add top quality competition lawyers to their teams. Of particular interest are candidates coming from other member states as well as competition lawyers with Chinese language skills to enable international firms to pitch and advice Chinese clients on competition and antitrust law.
Brussels remains an exciting location for top competition lawyers. It’s a major hub for high level, complex competition work and most of the world’s leading law firms have a strong on the ground presence there. Brussels has the highest proportion of non-native legal professionals of any major city in the world. It is a multi-cultural and multi-lingual society, where lawyers from the broadest range of backgrounds have established very successful careers.
Not just competition…
As the EU grows, both law firms and corporations move to Brussels to be close to the action. Many of the firms who originally established a presence on the back of competition and regulatory work have now developed strong corporate practices recruiting from local players as well as the International firms. This has changed the face of the Belgian legal sector.
The last decade has seen Brussels evolving beyond its “regulatory reputation” and becoming a real presence for corporate, IP and technology. Therefore we are also interested in hearing from top Belgian qualified lawyers with expertise in these areas.
