Biography • Competition - Lawyers

John Davies is a partner at Freshfields and former co-head of the firm’s global antitrust, competition and trade group. He divides his time between the Brussels and London offices. He served as managing partner of the firm’s Brussels office for over 10 years, having founded the office in 1989. Before joining Freshfields, John worked as a case officer in the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Competition.

John’s practice focuses on competition and regulatory matters at both European and national levels, including the coordination of cases before several different competition authorities in major international transactions and investigations.

His recent experience includes representing AB InBev in merger clearances for its acquisition of Modelo (Corona); ENI, BP, Chevron, and Total in the EU, China and other clearances of their Angola LNG joint venture; Mach in the European Commission’s Phase II merger inquiry into its acquisition by Syniverse; a global investment bank in the Commission's investigation into anti-competitive behaviour in the credit default swap markets; and Honeywell in the sale of its friction materials to Federal Mogul.

John is a visiting senior fellow at King’s College, University of London, and is a non-governmental adviser to the International Competition Network (ICN). He is recognised as a leading competition law practitioner in the principal legal directories and a number of guides. John speaks English and French.
