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 consistently recognized as having one of the leading antitrust/competition practices in the area of European Union and International Competition by Chambers Europe, Global Competition Review, IFLR1000 and The Legal 500. We were named one of Law360’s Competition Groups of the Year for 2020. In 2019, Skadden was recognized as Competition Team of the Year by Legal Business. We also were named Transatlantic Antitrust Team of the Year by The American Lawyer and Legal Week at the 2019 and 2018 Transatlantic Legal Awards. Our antitrust/competition team has 10 attorneys listed in Who’s Who Legal: Competition at all levels of seniority: partner, counsel and associate.
