Mayer Brown announced today that Aymeric de Moncuit joined the firm as a partner in its Antitrust & Competition practice in Brussels. He joins from the General Court of the European Union in Luxembourg, where he was a Référendaire for eight years.
“Aymeric is a great fit for the Antitrust practice in Brussels and our growing practice globally,” said Britt M. Miller, co-leader of the firm’s Antitrust & Competition practice. “Brussels is a critical hub for a robust Antitrust presence and our clients will benefit from Aymeric’s experience and relationships across Europe.”
Aymeric’s background includes significant experience in key areas such as Internet of Things (IoT), green deal and ESG. Prior to joining the Court, Aymeric was a competition lawyer in private practice, and a case handler with the French Competition Authority. He boasts considerable fluency in EU competition rules (cartels, competitor collaborations, dominance, State aid) and experience of the European courts. Aymeric has a reputation for an integrated and collaborative work style, and a well-developed network of contacts from European institutions and businesses. In addition to lecturing French and EU Competition Law in Panthéon-Assas, he is a prolific writer and speaker on EU litigation, State aid and competition/antitrust law topics.
“Aymeric’s experience handling complex matters at the General Court of the European Union and the French Competition Authority will be a great addition to our Paris team as well ,” said Nathalie Jalabert-Doury, co-head of Mayer Brown’s European Antitrust practice. “His hire is another step in achieving the strategic goals of the global Antitrust practice in a critical and expanding area of law.”
“As the center of EU policy, legislation and enforcement, Brussels is a critical market for a robust Antitrust practice,” said Jean-Philippe Montfort. “We’re extremely pleased to welcome Aymeric as we continue to strengthen our team here.”
