Mayer Brown & Squire Patton Boggs Grow EU Antitrust Teams

This week Squire Patton Boggs and Mayer Brown announced that they have added technology-focused partners to their European antitrust practice, Reuters reported.  

The former deputy head of the cartel division at Europe’s top antitrust watchdog, Directorate General – Competition, Gorka Navea,  joined global law firm Squire Patton Boggs from Wilson Sonsini.

In Brussels and Madrid Gorka Navea will be helping build the firm’s antitrust team focused for domestic clients in Spain, managing partner of the Madrid office Teresa Zueco said in a statement.

Squire Patton Boggs has been undertaking a planned expansion in Spain, where the firm is seeing parallel demand growth for transactional and antitrust work, Navea said.

They also anticipate an increasing workload as regulatory antitrust scrutiny and enforcement continue to build, Zueco said.

Navea specializes in international cartel investigations and abuse of dominance proceedings, particularly in the technology and life sciences sector, an archived Wilson Sonsini profile said.
