Firm Profile:

Since its establishment in 1989, Jones Day's Brussels Office has grown to more than 30 lawyers. Strategically located at the heart of the European Union, the Brussels Office advises clients on a wide range of regulatory, corporate/commercial, litigation and arbitration, tax, international trade, and labor law issues relevant to corporations doing business in Belgium, the EU, and worldwide.

The Brussels Office provides a wide-range of services to assist the Firm's national and international clients in negotiating the EU's complex legal environment. Our regulatory practice lawyers, recognized by Chambers and other legal directories as leading practitioners, advise in areas such as EU and Member State competition law, including M&A clearances; state aid; cartels; abuses of dominant position; sector-specific regulatory issues in relation to telecommunications, media and energy; and pleading matters before the European and national courts, as well as regular interaction with EU and national regulatory authorities. The Brussels Office also has significant experience in multinational transactions (M&A, joint ventures, "greenfield" investments), corporate/commercial matters, litigation and arbitration, real estate, tax planning and corporate structuring, and labor law. Our work in the critical, cutting-edge sectors of technology, media, and telecom receives top rankings in the Chambers Europe and PLC Which Lawyer? guides. We also have deep industry-specific knowledge in automotive, aviation, chemicals, financial services, real estate, and consumer products. The Brussels Office is part of an integrated worldwide organization of more than 2,400 lawyers, including more than 400 lawyers in ten key business centers throughout Europe, and our clients enjoy seamless access to the Firm's global resources.

Our growing Brussels-China practice serves the interests of Belgian SMEs and multinational companies in China, as well as Chinese companies in Belgium and across Europe. Our substantial EU-Japan practice also exemplifies Jones Day's "One Firm Worldwide" approach. Lawyers in the Brussels Office have been providing counsel to a broad range of Japan's industry leaders for many years.

Over the past two decades, the office has emerged as one of the largest of any U.S. law firm in Brussels. Our lawyers hail from jurisdictions worldwide, but all share a firm grounding and experience in Brussels. Our office serves as headquarters for Jones Day's European competition practice, with some 40 lawyers in eight cities.
