Mr Koen Van Maldegem
EU Regulatory, Competition and Trade
Koen has more than 25 years’ experience and he joined the firm in 2007. Working within the European and Belgian legal systems, he practices in the areas of European Union environmental and regulatory law, government contracts, European competition and procurement law, investment and subsidy policy in the Flemish Community, implementation of European legislation in the Flemish Community and overall co-operation with the Belgian government.
He works with clients in the chemical, biocide and plant protection product industries, who note that he has ‘extremely good insight into how the European Commission works and how we can align our expectations accordingly.’ He also handles environmental law issues, often involving the regulation of highly toxic substances.
He has served as a legal adviser to the Flemish Minister of Economy and he counsels US and European clients regarding trade and investment problems in Europe, particularly in Belgium.
He has established many task forces and associations, working on issues ranging from the regulation of industrial minerals and chemical products to the development of interbank exchange rates for the Euro.
