Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

A legal adviser since joining the Bar of Paris in 1994, Olivier Fréget supports and represents his clients before French and European courts on all matters related to competition law and regulation.

Renowned for the quality of his expertise and technical knowledge in terms of new technologies (especially IT), there is a particular demand for his services in the telecommunications, energy, media and life sciences sectors.

Before founding Fréget – Tasso de Panafieu, Olivier Fréget was a partner at Allen & Overy LLP in Paris, in charge of the Competition and European Law department in Paris and jointly responsible for the group's global Competition Law department between 2010 and 2013. In this capacity, he has acquired significant international experience in terms of competition laws and policies in Europe and beyond. He was previously a partner in charge of the competition law and European law department at Bird & Bird in Paris.

The firm is teaming up with the law firm Veil Jourde, a key player on the domestic market, and has moved into its premises.

Olivier has a postgraduate degree in private international law and international commercial law from the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. He has also studied economics and international politics. As a staunch and active European, he is a member of several think-tanks relating to competition policy and the EU.

At present, he teaches competition law at the Paris Institute of Political Studies.

WWL says: Olivier Fréget is a seasoned expert when it comes to acting before French and European courts on competition matters and is a leading light in the field of new technology.
