The global law firm Jones Day is pleased to announce that Charlotte Breuvart will join its Brussels Office on July 15 as a partner in the Antitrust & Competition Law Practice. Ms. Breuvart arrives from Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, where she was the resident partner in charge of that firm's Brussels antitrust and competition group.
Ms. Breuvart's practice focuses on European, French, and Belgian antitrust and competition law. She has extensive experience advising companies in the full range of European competition law issues, including merger control, cartels, abuse of dominance, and State aids. She regularly advises French, Belgian, and international companies in a variety of industries, with particular focus on the chemicals, defense, energy, financial services, media, and pharmaceutical sectors. Ms. Breuvart has been involved in major antitrust cases before the European Commission and the General Court of the European Union, as well as in major M&A transactions involving merger filings with the European Commission and the competition authorities in France and Belgium. She will be based in the Brussels Office, but will also spend time in Jones Day's Paris Office.
"We are very pleased to welcome Charlotte to our global team," said Dave Wales, partner and practice leader of Jones Day's Antitrust & Competition Law Practice. "Her experience complements our highly regarded competition law practice in Europe, and brings additional depth to our excellent teams in Belgium and France, as well as in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the UK."
"Charlotte's broad experience is an asset for our clients who conduct business across Europe, particularly in relation to her valuable knowledge of the energy sector," said Bernard Amory, Partner–in-Charge of Jones Day's Brussels Office.
Prior to joining Willkie, Ms. Breuvart served as a senior antitrust in-house counsel at EDF, the French electricity incumbent. She is ranked by Chambers Global as a leading practitioner in the area of Competition/European Law in Belgium and Corporate/M&A (Competition) in France. She holds law degrees from the University of Panthéon-Assas (Paris II) and the University of Dauphine (Paris IX), and also holds a degree in political science from the Institute of Political Studies (I.E.P.) of Rennes. Ms. Breuvart is admitted to the Paris bar.
