Norton Rose Fulbright

Comment: This respected antitrust practice is making progress with building up the German practice, because its size enables it to create stronger internal divisions. Clients had good things to say about the specialist expertise of an experienced counsel in Hamburg regarding licensing and selective distribution. Highly regarded partner Kleine represents clients in some proceedings related to the rail cartel, and both were engaged for new cartel cases afterwards. The practice negotiated a settlement for a client personally affected by cartel activities. An arms company that used to retain a different firm turned to this team for the first time. The Brussels team is highly international, focusing on complex regulatory aspects of antitrust law as well as the energy and air/rail transport sectors.
Strengths: Strong in transport and energy projects.
Development potential: The international network offers more opportunities for growth. However, the Hamburg and Brussels teams' focus on internal structuring and advancement in the German market could be good for development in the medium term.
Recommended: Jürgen Werner, Dr. Maxim Kleine.
