 |  July 1, 2020

Van Bael & Bellis announced that Alex Stratakis is joining the firm this week as a Partner.

Based in London, and with almost 15 years of experience in all aspects of competition law, Alex will lead the UK Competition practice out of Van Bael & Bellis’ new London office, opening in September (subject to SRA approval).

Alex’s practice covers predominantly the UK, but also EU, Greek, and Cypriot competition law, focusing on complex merger control, distribution, dominance and state aid.

He has extensive experience successfully representing clients before the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), the European Commission and various (non-UK) national competition authorities across the globe, as well as before European and national courts. He has also advised a number of companies on the implications of the UK’s Foreign Direct Investment Screening Regime.

Alex’s practice covers a wide range of sectors, including life sciences (originators and medical device manufacturers), aviation, automotive, energy & mining, industrials, chemicals, luxury goods, telecoms, media, transport, and infrastructure.  

Alex said, “I am delighted to be re-joining Van Bael & Bellis as Partner to spearhead the enhancement of the firm’s UK capabilities together with a very gifted and experienced team of solicitors. Van Bael & Bellis’ stellar competition practice and unique market proposition needs no introduction; and I will be relying heavily on my colleagues to succeed together.”
