Q&A with Paul Lugard, Partner at Baker Botts (Belgium) LLP

Q&A with Paul Lugard, Partner at Baker Botts (Belgium) LLP Image

Paul Lugard studied law at the University of Groningen, a vibrant, but also a somewhat far-away city in the northern part of the Netherlands. After a traineeship at DG COMP, then called DG 4, he spent a year at the College of Europe and was then hired by one of the larger Dutch firms in Rotterdam, Trenité van Doorne. After five years he moved to an in-house position at Philips, where he would spent more than a decade, the last few years as Senior Vice President and Head of Antitrust. It was an exciting and interesting period and Paul Lugard have made some good friends there. In 2012 I was asked to set up the Brussels office of Baker Botts, together with Catriona Hatton, who was then the partner in charge of the Brussels office of Hogan Lovells.
