EU: Antitrust Pro joints Noerr in Brussels

 |  January 20, 2020

Jens Peter Schmidt joins Noerr from Mayer Brown, where he was the managing partner of its Brussels office, and co-heading the firm’s European antitrust and competition practice. Covering the entire spectrum of German and EU antitrust law, a focus of his counseling concerns merger control risk analyses and complex merger control notifications before the European Commission and the German Federal Cartel Office. Jens Peter also represents clients in cartel case investigations, structures compliance programs, and provides assessments of vertical and horizontal arrangements, including information exchanges. He also advises on state aid issues.

“We are pleased to have gained such a high-profile, internationally highly respected Brussels-based antitrust expert who has an excellent feel for the market and always has an eye for cross-practice cooperation,” says Fabian Badtke, head of Noerr’s antitrust and competition practice.

Opened in 2014 with Dominik Wendel at the helm, Noerr’s Brussels office concentrates on antitrust, state aid and distribution matters. Now with the new co-heads Dominik Wendel and Jens Peter Schmidt, Noerr will expand the range of services to other EU regulatory issues.
