What the team is known for

Jones Day's office in Brussels is known to coordinate cross-border matters, utilising the firm's expansive international network spanning North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. It has strong teams across disputes, corporate and finance areas, well versed in international work and collaborating with colleagues across its global network. Its capacity to manage complex multi-jurisdictional matters is an attractive proposition, and the team frequently advises on Belgian law aspects for a diverse range of multinational clients.

While the team offers a full-service scope, it is a popular choice for handling competition mandates related to the EU. Brussels-based individuals qualified in different EU member states often assist with merger control or behavioural investigations carried out by national competition regulators in Italy, Germany or Belgium. It also works closely with colleagues across the USA and other jurisdictions to handle M&A matters for US-headquartered companies in the telecoms, pharmaceutical, consumer goods and transportation sectors. The Brussels office also advises on regulatory issues in the life sciences sector, with an emphasis on pan-European work.

Strengths

A client says: "The team is excellent. They helped us to navigate issues that were more Belgian in nature, but had the experience to provide a perspective that was more global."

Clients underline the firm's international profile, in addition to its Benelux strength. An interviewee notes: "What is helpful is that they are much more integrated as a global firm and they have a very good relationship with their Dutch office."

Others admire the firm's ability to manage multi-jurisdictional M&A transactions, saying:"Jones Day is perfectly capable of assisting in other geographies without too much hassle, and the support in other geographies is seamless."

Another client praises the firm's leveraging of its US expertise for cross-border merger filings, revealing: "The relationship originated in the US rather than Europe. A lot of the work I have to give out is merger control - global merger filings involving the US and Brussels - it's a real benefit having lawyers in both locations."
