Biography • Competition - Lawyers

Marleen Van Kerckhove is a partner at Arnold & Porter. She is head of the firm's European competition practice and the Brussels office. Her practice encompasses advice and representation before EU and national antitrust agencies on merger control, cartel investigations, abusive conduct and compliance policies, as well as litigation before European courts. She has advised extensively on the application of EU competition law to the pharmaceutical sector, and on the interplay between antitrust and intellectual property law. She is fluent in English, Dutch and French.

Ms Van Kerckhove has steered several major acquisitions and joint ventures through the EU merger control process. She regularly provides pre-transactional strategic advice, has been successful in obtaining clearances swiftly and efficiently around the globe, and, where necessary, negotiating remedies to avoid a prolonged in-depth investigation. In addition, she regularly assists clients on cartel matters, advising on the where and when of immunity/leniency applications, taking clients through investigations, coordinating with counsel in other jurisdictions and providing strategic advice in the context of acquisitions or compliance scenarios.

She has, among others, assisted Air Products, Boston Scientific, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cisco, EFPIA, General Electric, Hitachi, Pfizer, and Sanyo/Panasonic on EU and international competition law matters.
