DWF further Strengthens in Europe with Two Strategic Partner Hires
10th May 2019
Paul joins from DLA Piper France and specialises in banking, finance and debt capital markets. He brings in-depth expertise across debt restructuring, finance as well as in various regulatory and derivatives issues. At DWF, Paul will lead the banking and finance practice in Paris.
Christian is a specialist in European Union and national, especially German competition Law. He joins the business from O’Melveny & Myers in Brussels. His practice includes the provision of strategic antitrust-related advice on M&A transactions as well as companies' day-to-day competition law compliance needs with regard to, for example, distribution and other cooperation agreements.
As a German-qualified lawyer and a long-time member of the Brussels bar, he has extensive experience navigating multi-jurisdictional merger cases and defending clients in complex abuse of dominance and cartel investigations before the European Commission, the German Bundeskartellamt, and other antitrust regulators across the globe.
Christian will work alongside DWF partners Vassilis Akritidis and Jonathan Branton as well as others to build an international antitrust capability that is anchored in Brussels but that will benefit DWF's entire global business.
