Who's Who Legal Competition: Economists

Vincent Verouden, PhD, is a director at the Brussels office of E.CA Economics.

Vincent, a Dutch national, started his career at the European Commission in January 2000. In the first years, he worked for the Merger Task Force (MTF), where he was involved in the review of mergers and acquisitions across a broad range of sectors. He was one of the co-authors of the Horizontal Merger Guidelines published in 2004.

Subsequently, Vincent worked for DG Competition’s Chief Economist Team (CET), most recently (2012–2014) as a deputy chief economist. At the CET, Vincent had a lead role in the development of the Non-Horizontal Merger Guidelines (2008). He also contributed to the Commission’s antitrust inquiry (2008–2009) into the pharmaceutical sector and related cases. In the area of state aid control, he contributed significantly to the economic analysis of individual cases and to the development of state aid policy.

His present consulting activities span the fields of antitrust, merger control and state aid control. Recent engagements include work for Heidelberg Cement, Airbus, Heineken, CVC Capital Partners and LG Chem.

Vincent is an extramural fellow at the Tilburg  Law and Economics Centre of Tilburg University. He also teaches at the Brussels School of Competition’s LLM programme. He is the author of many publications on competition policy and co-editor of the book EU State Aid Control: Law and Economics (Wolters Kluwer 2016).

WWL says: Vincent Verouden, former deputy chief economist at the European Commission, stands out for his insight into merger guidelines and the competitive effects of state aid control.
