Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Antitrust Practice with the addition of Jérémie Marthan as a partner in Paris.
"The growing relevance of antitrust in the digital economy, an evolving need for horizontal co-operation between competitors and regulators becoming more interventionist have driven an increasing demand for competition advice globally," said White & Case partner Mark Gidley, Head of the Global Antitrust Practice. "Our ability to advise clients holistically and globally on their litigation, investigation and merger matters has never been more important. We are delighted to add Jérémie, who is brilliant and has worked on numerous high profile antitrust matters."
Marthan advises clients on merger control, cartels, horizontal cooperation, vertical restraints, abuse of dominant position and litigation before the French Competition Authority and the European Commission. He has particular expertise in the energy, finance and media sectors. Marthan joins White & Case from Linklaters.
Marthan joins a standout team of 13 antitrust lawyers in Paris, led by White & Case partner Yann Utzschneider, who advise French and international companies on the full spectrum of competition matters. Now with two partners, five counsel and six associates, the team will cement its position as a leading competition/antitrust team in Paris, with significant further capacity to deliver tailor-made advice on major deals.
Denise Diallo, White & Case Executive Partner in Paris, said: "Jérémie provides further bench strength and recognition to the antitrust practice in Paris, as well as Europe more widely, and will complement our other leading practices, particularly M&A and disputes. Our investments in the Paris office through partner additions and promotions, most recently with the arrival of M&A partner Marc Petitier, demonstrate our commitment to continuing to grow our offering in the market."
Partner Oliver Brettle, a member of White & Case's global Executive Committee, said: "White & Case continues to invest strategically across EMEA, and the arrival of Jérémie supports our focus on key global industries, including energy and financial institutions. The strength of our global network and our ability to provide counsel on complex cross-border matters around the world are often deciding factors in why clients choose us. Investing in Paris and other key European hubs to further strengthen that network is more important than ever for a post-Brexit world."
