Who's Who Legal Competition: Economists

Aleksandra Boutin is a founding partner of Positive Competition. She has 15 years of experience in competition policy as an enforcer, consultant and academic.

Aleksandra advises clients on a wide range of competition issues in the context of merger and antitrust proceedings in front of the European Commission and national competition authorities (including the CEE region). Her recent experience involves cartel overcharge analysis, vertical and horizontal mergers, exclusionary and exploitative abuses, state aid, information exchanges, and sectors such as high technology, internet platforms, sports, media, manufacturing, oil, FMCG, insurance and agriculture. 

Aleksandra has a solid enforcement background, having spent several years in DG Competition’s policy directorate. She co-drafted the 2010 EC’s Guidelines on Horizontal Agreements, including the new chapter on information exchanges, and the Block Exemption Regulation. She also participated in preparing the communication of the Commission on quantifying harm in antitrust damage actions. She was involved in many high-profile antitrust and merger cases in a wide range of sectors such as IT, energy, commodities, food, postal services, transport and banking.  She is also the non-governmental adviser for Poland in the International Competition Network and leads a series of seminars on the role of economics in competition law at the Polish Competition Authority.

Aleksandra holds a master’s degree in theoretical economics and econometrics from Toulouse School of Economics and a master’s degree in European law and economic analysis from the College of Europe. She completed her PhD studies at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, where she teaches industrial organisation at graduate level. She is also a member of the scientific committee of the Global Competition Law Centre.
