Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher announced that Christian Riis-Madsen will join the firm’s Brussels office as a partner in the firm’s Antitrust and Competition Practice Group.  Riis-Madsen joins the firm from O’Melveny & Myers.

“We are delighted that Christian is joining us,” said Ken Doran, Chairman and Managing Partner of Gibson Dunn.  “He is highly regarded in the Brussels legal and business communities and is well-known to many of our partners and several of our clients.  He has a well-rounded competition practice with deep experience with top multinational technology companies. Moreover, he has demonstrated strong leadership qualities and will complement the strengths of our global Antitrust and Competition Practice Group.”

“Christian is a super fit to our existing Brussels practice, both in terms of his great legal skills and his personality,” said Peter Alexiadis, Partner in Charge of the Brussels office.  “Christian has been on our radar for some time.  His reputation in the high tech sector fits very well with our existing client base, while significant synergies also present themselves in the growth of our existing Scandinavian/Nordic practice.”
