Georg Weidenbach - Latham & Watkins LLP

Within: Antitrust

At Latham & Watkins LLP, ‘all team members demonstrate what they can do’ and ‘do not shy away from new challenges’. The firm’s antitrust expertise comprises advisory capacities in merger control, abuse proceedings and actions for damages. Prominent instructions include the defence of a steel-producing company against claims in connection with pre-stressing steel cartel, the representation of a bank in proceedings following the decision of the Federal Cartel Office on EC card fees, as well as the defence of Singapore Airlines and Singapore Airlines Cargo against actions concerning the airfreight cartel. The ‘dynamic’ practice group, led by Michael Esser, saw an increase in merger controls: it was instructed by Hytera Communications in phase-II proceedings regarding the acquisition of Sepura. Georg Weidenbach and Brussels-based Marc Hansen represented Exide Technologies in four national antitrust proceedings, including the application of a leniency notice and a subsequent reduction of the penalty payment.
