Biography:

Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

Craig Pouncey has been managing partner of Herbert Smith Freehills' Brussels office since 2005. His broad-based EU and UK competition practice focuses on merger control, cartel investigations, antitrust litigation and counselling for a large number of high-profile international clients. His experience covers a broad range of sectors, including telecoms and media (he is acknowledged as the leading expert on UK newspaper mergers), manufacturing industries, music, e-commerce and financial services. Craig regularly appears before the European Commission, European Courts and the UK Competition Appeal tribunal. 

Craig has played the leading role in co-ordinating and developing the Brussels office's cartels practice and has been involved in a number of the automotive parts cases (including wire-harnesses and automotive bearings), as well as the cables case and the European Commission's investigations into the LIBOR/EURIBOR and Foreign Exchange markets.

Craig has been especially active in developing the link between the Brussels office and the Asia-Pacific region, in particular Tokyo. As a result of his efforts, the office now counts amongst its clients an impressive roster of Japanese manufacturing, financial services and trading houses. 

Craig studied at King’s College London and the universities of Paris and Nice, before qualifying as a barrister in 1985. He joined Herbert Smith in 1987 and has been based in Brussels since 1994, when he became a partner.

WWL says: The outstanding Craig Pouncey is a prominent name in the market, known for his top-quality advice in multi-jurisdictional merger issues and cartel investigations.
