Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

Bart de Rijke divides his time between Amsterdam and Brussels. He specialises in EU and cross-border competition law matters and represents companies in their multi-jurisdictional competition cases. He has a special interest in technology-driven industries, building on his experience in representing high-tech companies in complex competition matters and his involvement in Europe-wide patent litigation involving substantial competition law issues.

Bart has significant experience in acting as coordinating counsel in multi-jurisdictional merger filings and he has established working relations with first tier competition experts in all major jurisdictions. He has successfully litigated in abuse of dominance cases and regularly advises clients on related topics. His work includes advising and defending clients in cartel investigations by European and national regulators. He also regularly advises multinational clients on aspects of competition law in contractual relations, in particular involving IP rights.
