Who's Who Legal Data: Telecoms & Media

Laurent is a partner in Freshfields’ antitrust group, based in the Brussels office. He is also co-head of the firm’s global telecommunications, media and technology (TMT) sector group. His practice focuses on EU and international competition law encompassing multifaceted cross-border merger transactions and international investigations of anti-competitive behaviour including ensuing litigation before both national and European courts. 

In the TMT sector, Laurent’s experience crosses a range of transactional, investigatory and regulatory work. His recent focus has been on big data and in particular price algorithms, advising on the compatibility with competition law of online platforms. He is also currently advising a multinational on the compatibility of its technologies with the Belgian Electronic Communications Act and competition laws more broadly.

Widely recognised as a leading lawyer in his fields of practice, Laurent serves as vice chair of the international antitrust law committee of the ABA Section of International Law and is a regular commentator on topics of European competition law and regulation. He is the author of Telecommunications, Broadcasting and the Internet: EU Competition Law and Regulation, which is currently in its third edition. Laurent is a Belgian qualified lawyer and member of the New York Bar.

WWL says: Laurent Garzaniti boasts vast transactional, investigatory and regulatory expertise in the TMT sector and impresses clients with his "outstanding ability to pinpoint pertinent economic issues".
