Our team comprises four partners and a team of associates.
What our partners have in common is a career firmly rooted in the academic world. This ensures that we maintain the highest possible scientific standards and that we take an active part in the debates of the 'competition community', together with legal scholars, lawyers, judges, members of competition authorities and competition authorities' economists.
Beyond this common background, our partners' skills and experiences are diverse, and their combination allows us to address all the issues raised in competition cases.
