Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

Rachel Brandenburger has been a senior adviser and foreign legal consultant to Hogan Lovells US LLP since 2014. She is based in New York and provides strategic advice on international antitrust law and policy issues, including merger, cartel and conduct investigations, and coordination among the international antitrust agencies investigating the same matter.

From 2010-2013, Rachel was Special Advisor, International to the Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust at the US Department of Justice, based in Washington, DC. She advised on many Antitrust Division matters that involved extensive cooperation efforts between the Antitrust Division and its international counterparts, including the eBooks investigation, the Deutsche Boerse/NYSE transaction, the merger between United Technologies Corporation and Goodrich Corporation, revised best practices regarding cooperation in merger investigations with the European Commission, and memoranda of understanding with the Chinese and Indian antitrust agencies.  

Previously, she was a partner for 21 years in Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, based in the firm’s Brussels and London offices, where she led many ground breaking cases in front of the European Commission, the UK competition and regulatory agencies and other agencies around the world. She was also the co-head of the firm’s global telecommunications, media and technology regulatory group.

Rachel is a non-governmental adviser to the International Competition Network, advising the European Commission on global cooperation initiatives.

She is a frequent speaker and writer on international antitrust law and policy issues. She holds a Visiting Law Fellowship at St Hilda's College, University of Oxford; and has given guest lectures at Columbia University; New York University; King's College, London; and the University of Hong Kong.

She is a member of the American Antitrust Institute's Advisory Board, the American Bar Association’s Section of Antitrust Law’s International and Transparency and Procedural Fairness Task Forces, the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association’s Antitrust Section, and two editorial boards.

She has been a non-executive director on the Board of the Friends of the British Council, Washington, DC and a pacesetter for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides against Breast Cancer Central Park Walks since 2014.

She has an MA Honours (first class) in jurisprudence from the University of Oxford, UK. She is admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales, and is licensed as a foreign legal consultant in New York.

WWL says: Rachel Brandenburger is a "very impressive" practitioner who "gives fantastic policy advice" and has "great knowledge of agencies around the world".
