Professor, The Law of Economics of Vertical Restraints, Brussels School of Competition (Belgium)


Master of Law, University of Antwerp (Belgium)


I am active in the fields of EU, competition and distribution law. I am an experienced negotiator, litigator and arbitrator (ICC, CEPANI, ad hoc arbitration) and I am a regular speaker at conferences on various competition and distribution law matters. Together with Filip Tuytschaever I head contrast’s EU and Competition team. I have published several articles on EU and Belgian competition and distribution law and co-edited the publications of the monograph ‘Vertical Agreements in EU Competition Law’ (third edition, Oxford University Press 2018, 462 p., with F. Tuytschaever) and ‘Distribution Agreements – EU – Belgium – The Netherlands’ (Larcier 2018, 635 p., with F. Tuytschaever a.o., in Dutch).
