Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP

Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP's Brussels team works closely with members of the London and Frankfurt offices on EU competition matters. In addition, the firm has an antitrust practice in the US, giving the firm a strong profile in all types of transactional and behavioural matters with a global dimension. In a deal that is significant to the titanium dioxide market, Brussels office head Luc Gyselen and associate Tiiu Iverson are acting for Cristal in the EC's review of its proposed acquisition by competitor Tronox. Axel Gutermuth worked with practitioners in the US to assist Monsanto with the global merger filings connected with its $66bn merger with Bayer. The other notable individual in Brussels is Niels Ersbøll, whose areas of sector expertise spans life sciences, telecoms, energy and transports/logistics. Ersbøll is 'excellent in his advice; he thinks with the client in mind, and suggests viable alternatives when feasible'. Ersbøll and others are assisting AT&T with obtaining clearances in the EU, and further afield internationally, for its $86.4bn acquisition of Time Warner. Pfizer, Cisco Systems, GE and Boston Scientific are among its other clients.

    In May 2014, it will be ten years since Regulation No 1/2003 entered into force. When the legislator of the European Union adopted this Regulation on 16 December 2002, its main objective was to decentralise the enforcement of the two main provisions of EU antitrust law, Articles 81 and 82 of the Treaty establishing the European Community (now Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU)). Where do the arbitrators fit in this picture?
