Shearman & Sterling LLP

Shearman & Sterling LLP covers the full range of competition work for clients across many industries, including automotive, biotechnology, telecoms and consumer goods. Its ability to resource matters across offices makes it well placed to handle cross-border mandates. Global practice head Matthew Readings is part of the cross-office team that is advising Paper Excellence on the global antitrust aspects of its $4.7bn acquisition of Brazilian pulp-maker Eldorado Brasil Celulose. Also highly regarded are Geert Goeteyn and Elvira Aliende Rodriguez, who are working with members of the London office to represent Cargolux Airlines in an appeal of the EC's re-adopted decision in the air freight investigation, as well as related UK follow-on damages proceedings. James Webber, who splits his practice between the Brussels and London offices, is leading the advice to five oil and gas companies (Royal Dutch Shell, Engie, OMV, Wintershall and Uniper) on the competition issues related to the financing and gas transportation arrangements for the high-profile Nord Stream Two gas pipeline. In addition, Webber is assisting ArcelorMittal with the competition issues associated with its joint bid with Nippon Steel to acquire Essar Steel. Other clients of the practice include McGraw Hill, Bunge and Coesia.
