Who's Who Legal Competition: State Aid

John is resident in Brussels and has dual Belgian and UK nationality. He is qualified both as a solicitor (England and Wales) and as a member of the Brussels Bar (A List).

John’s practice involves EU merger notifications and cartel investigations by the European Commission and national competition authorities (including immunity/leniency applications). His contentious work includes proceedings before the General Court and Court of Justice, including successful appeals in cartel, merger, state aid and parallel trade matters.

John’s highlights include advising: British Airways on the European Commission’s investigation and approval (under Article 101 TFEU) of BA’s transatlantic alliance with American Airlines and Iberia, as well as the EUMR clearance of the BA/Iberia merger (establishing IAG) and IAG's subsequent acquisitions of bmi and Aer Lingus; and Bertelsmann on the Sony/BMG merger and subsequent appeals to the European courts, as well as on the disposal of its music publishing interests (to Vivendi/Universal) and its Penguin Random House book publishing joint venture. He has also advised on various other Phase II cases (eg, Ball/Rexam, Cargill/Degussa, IBM/Telelogic and SC Johnson/Sara Lee), as well as Phase I commitments cases (eg, Akzo Nobel/ICI, Becton Dickinson/Bard, FMC/DuPont Divestment Assets, Intel/McAfee, Reckitt Benckiser/SSL and Thermo Fisher/Life Technologies), and cases involving the Article 4 pre-notification referral procedures.
