University of Louvain

A graduate from the University of Louvain, the College of Europe and New York University, Damien Gerard is currently a Research Fellow at the Chair of European law of the University of Louvain and a Visiting Fulbright-Schuman Research Scholar at Harvard Law School (Institute for Global Law & Policy). He is a member of the New York Bar and fully qualified in Brussels where he practiced for five years with Cleary Gottlieb LLP. In 2003-2004, Damien Gerard clerked for Judge Lenaerts of the European Court of Justice. In 2008-2009, he was a Visiting Lecturer in EC Competition Law at University Paris V - Descartes. His recent scholarship focuses on EC competition law enforcement and, in particular, the interactions between the European Commission and national competition authorities, on the one hand, and between EC competition law and internal market rules, on the other hand. He has published and spoken extensively on EC competition law enforcement, substantive antitrust law and State aids issues (incl. in relation to the financial crisis) and general EU law, including institutional matters. Representative publications include the chapter on Judicial Review of Cartel Decisions in the leading treatise on Cartel Law in the European Union (M. Siragusa and C. Rizza, eds), one of the first comprehensive article published on EC State aids rules applied to the financial crisis (Concurrences, 2009) and an account of possible remedies to protectionist threats to cross-border mergers in the EU (Common Market Law Review, 2008).
