Public Law / Competition and EU Law




Arthur Helfer, Associate, is a member of the Public Law and Competition and EU Law teams.

Within the Public Law team, Arthur mainly works on Public Law issues related to the economy (public contracts, privatisation, company law in the public sector) and sector-specific regulations (agriculture, sports, media, energy, transportation).

He also spends a significant amount of time on litigation, both before jurisdictions of first instance, courts of appeal and before the Conseil d’État (French administrative Supreme Court), particularly for appeals against general regulations.

Within the Competition team, Arthur is more particularly involved in state aids and antitrust law (cartels, abuse of dominant position).

Thanks to his dual competence, he brings a particular focus on issues linked to the intervention of public persons in the competition sector as well as economic regulation.

Arthur is a lecturer of public law at Sciences Po. Prior to that, he taught constitutional law and administrative law at the University Paris II Panthéon-Assas as seminar supervisor (chargé de travaux dirigés).

He also worked as an assistant de justice (law clerk) for the Conseil d’État (2009-2010).
