 |  October 26, 2016

King and Wood Mallesons has lost another heavy-hitter as competition partner Philipp Girardet exits the firm to set up Willkie Farr & Gallagher’s London competition practice.

Girardet, who will join with a team including associate Rahul Saha, advises on a broad range of EU and UK competition law, competition litigation and regulatory issues. Girardet will be a significant loss for the legacy SJ Berwin partnership as he is understood to have been one the top 20 billers of the 2015/16 financial year.

Previously Girardet was the deputy director of the cartels branch of the UK competition authority for two years from 2005 and during his career has worked closely with the European Commission, the US Department of Justice and OECD Competition Section.
