Over the last 15 years he has been closely involved in dozens of in-depth merger and antitrust investigations, at the fact finding, analysis, and decision making stages. He has defended the EU Commission in several court proceedings and provided economic testimony to EU Courts in several high profile antitrust and merger cases. He has written articles on EU competition policy and financial market regulation, with the aim of shaping and guiding EU enforcement and policymaking.
