22nd May 2013
International law firm Dechert LLP announced today that Hans Jürgen Meyer-Lindemann has joined the firm’s Antitrust/Competition practice as a partner. He will split his time between the firm’s Brussels and Frankfurt offices. Prior to joining Dechert, he was the Brussels office managing partner at Shearman & Sterling.
Meyer-Lindemann practices both German and EU competition law, regularly advising on high-profile merger control cases before the European Commission and national competition authorities, major cartel investigations across a variety of industries, and numerous litigation matters concerning both public and private enforcement before national and European courts.
“We are very pleased that Jürgen is joining the firm. He is a highly regarded lawyer who represents a significant boost to our European competition practice,” said Michael L. Weiner, co-chair of Dechert’s global Competition/Antitrust Group. “His knowledge and experience, especially in merger and non-merger investigations, as well as his litigation skills, fit in perfectly with our existing practice and our clients’ needs.”
Said Meyer-Lindemann: “Joining Dechert is an exciting opportunity for me. The firm has a global reputation for excellence in competition/antitrust matters and I look forward to helping to build up the group.”
Meyer-Lindemann is qualified to practice in Germany and New York. He is a graduate of Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn and New York University. Fluent in German, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, Meyer-Lindemann also serves as a lecturer on competition law at Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf.
Chambers Europe 2013 says of Meyer-Lindemann that “clients value his long-standing experience in the competition law field, which allows him to strike a balance between commercial and legal considerations. While he’s very legally experienced, he also understands the client’s practical needs.”
