The Brussels office of Skadden opened in 1990 and advises clients on European Union (EU) law. Our attorneys handle matters involving EU and other non-U.S. antitrust, cartel and merger control laws, as well as a wide range of other EU competition, liberalization and regulatory issues.
Skadden is one of the most successful American law firms to have established a combined U.S. and European capability in Europe, developing local practices across the key European jurisdictions. Our European practice extends across six offices, operating as an integrated practice group without office or jurisdictional boundaries. This approach is a critical part of our competitive advantage in Europe.
Skadden’s Brussels office is recognized as having one of the top practices in the area of European Union and International Competition by Chambers Europe, IFLR 1000 and The Legal 500. In 2019, Skadden was recognized as Competition Team of the Year by Legal Business, and in 2016 Skadden was ranked as an “Outstanding” firm in Global Competition Review’s survey of Brussels’ top competition practices.
