EU, Competition and Regulatory

DALDEWOLF's lawyers in this team are experts in European law, competition, regulatory and sector regulation.

We handle competition law cases, in both Belgian and European law (disputes before the authorities and the courts). We assist clients facing antitrust, merger control proceedings, state aid issues, audits and draw up tailormade compliance programs. Our team has an extensive knowledge of the regulatory frameworks in various sectors, such as telecommunications, electricity, gas and rail transport. Our lawyers also handle single market issues (free movement of goods and services, freedom of establishment, etc.).

Our knowledge of EU & Belgian competition law has been widely acclaimed. The department is listed in the Legal 500 ranking Belgian Competition Law : “With some of the firm’s lawyers being economists, its expertise relies on an in-depth understanding of economic issues”.

Our team also has a wide experience in European and international civil service law.

Our European law, competition, distribution and market practice team is led by Thierry Bontinck, Carole MaczkovicsPierre Goffinet, assisted by Laure Bersou, Anais Guillerme, Thaïs Payan, Lynn Waem, Roman Spangenberg and Mediona Shehu.

DALDEWOLF has significant experience in the telecommunications sector and in other regulated industries, such as the network industries and postal services. DALDEWOLF also handles matters for clients from the following sectors: energy (REMIT and the different network codes) and transport (air and rail).

Our partnership also has expertise in European public procurement, a practice developed by Emmanuel van Nuffel as part of our administrative law and public procurement team.
