Global Competition Review: Baker Botts’ Brussels Antitrust Team ‘Recommended’



BRUSSELS, June 30, 2014 -- Baker Botts has been recognized as a “Recommended” law firm in Global Competition Review’s (GCR) latest Brussels competition law survey.

GCR editors wrote: “Baker Botts is one of the newest kids on the Brussels antitrust block. It was established in September 2012 with the hire of Catriona Hatton. The practice has gotten off to a convincing start since then, with the arrival of another Who’s Who Legal nominee, Paul Lugard, and Georg Berrisch, an experienced litigator who joined in September 2013. Hatton says the practice is now taking on a combination of home-grown work with referrals from the successful US office, and is able to build on the firm’s rich client base in the energy sector.”

They also recognized Baker Botts by stating, “Notably, the group advised Cameron International on its joint venture with Schlumberger for subsea oil and gas production, while Berrisch is acting for Ryanair in a number of competition disputes in the EU courts, including its appeal against the commission’s prohibition of its Aer Lingus takeover.”

Baker Botts was one of only six law firms who received a leading practitioner interview that discussed the development of Brussels as a competition law centre. The article containing the interview is available here.

Additionally, the publication recognized the following firm clients: Caterpillar, Ryanair, Colfax Corporation, Contran Corporation and Cameron International Corporation.
