Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP has bolstered its presence at the heart of the European Union by launching an EU Competition and Regulatory practice at its office in Brussels.

The California-based firm has initiated a series of lateral Partner and Counsel hires, starting with prominent competition lawyer Jacques Derenne, who will be joined by Robert Klotz to form an EU team advising on competition, regulatory and other EU law. With forthcoming new hires in Brussels and a preeminent Antitrust and Competition team across the US, Asia and more recently London, Sheppard Mullin has established a leading global competition practice.

Leading competition lawyer Jacques Derenne will head Sheppard Mullin’s new EU Competition and Regulatory Practice in Brussels. Partner Robert Klotz and two Counsel, Chris Guirado and Yaniss Aiche, are also joining the new Sheppard Mullin team. This follows the firm’s recent addition of competition Partner Oliver Heinisch in London. Further Partners and other hires will be announced in the coming weeks.
