Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

Hans-Jörg Niemeyer has been a partner in the Brussels office of Hengeler Mueller since 2001. He was previously a partner with Gleiss Hirsch (1990–2000). Mr Niemeyer advises German and international clients on EU and German merger control, cartel investigations and alleged abuse of dominant positions, as well as state aid matters.

He has represented clients in several dozen proceedings before the European Commission, General Court and Court of Justice of the European Union. He has far-reaching experience in coordinating large merger control and cartel cases in European and non-European jurisdictions. Recent merger control, cartel and state aid cases include Austrian Airlines/Lufthansa (EU merger control), bathroom fittings, automotive parts and capacitors (EU cartel) and WestLB AG and JC Flowers/HSH Nordbank (state aid).

Hans-Jörg Niemeyer regularly speaks on EU competition issues. He has contributed numerous articles to legal journals.

Hengeler Mueller is widely recognised as a pre-eminent commercial law firm with an enviable corporate client base. Hans-Jörg Niemeyer is one of seven partners in the firm's competition group, which operates out of Brussels and Düsseldorf, and covers all areas of competition and regulatory matters.

WWL says: Hans-Jörg Niemeyer is “well established and very present in the Brussels market”. In addition to his core competition expertise, he is noted for his “long experience and thoughtful and considered advice” in the state aid arena.​
