Alexandra Rogers joined White & Case in 2008 and is a local partner in the firm's Brussels office. She advises clients on a broad range of competition law issues, including dawn raids and inspections, cross-border merger control, and antitrust compliance for both dominant and non-dominant companies as well as trade associations.
Alexandra has a significant track record of defending and advising clients in major international cartel investigations, in areas such as power cables, ball bearings and Euribor derivatives.

She has also helped clients to obtain approval from the European Commission when purchasing assets divested as part of the EU merger procedure, and advises clients in merger proceedings before the UK competition authority.
A fluent French speaker, Alexandra was seconded to the Paris office of White & Case, where she assisted a major European bank in connection with investigations by the American and French regulatory authorities.
Alexandra has experience working with the application of antitrust rules to horizontal and vertical agreements and has also advised clients on abuse of dominance issues, including in relation to IP law.
