David Wood

Gibson Dunn (Brussels)
Lawyer (Partner)

David Wood is an English qualified partner and member of the Brussels Bar based in the Brussels office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Prior to joining Gibson Dunn, Mr. Wood spent 10 years (from 1992) at the antitrust enforcement division of the European Commission (DG Competition), including positions as Head of the Financial Services Unit and Acting Head of the Media Unit. He is one of the few lawyers in private practice to have held a senior position in the antitrust enforcement division of the European Commission (DG Competition), meaning he brings to his clients not only deep experience of European antitrust enforcement, but also valuable insights into how to manage risk and avoid problems. During his time at the Commission he was responsible for the teams involved in some of the most hard-fought cartel cases and some of the most high-profile and complex media, transport and financial services cases. He was also a member of the Commission working groups responsible for most of the significant developments in EU antitrust policy and appeared regularly before the European Courts of Justice. Mr. Wood began his legal career in 1986 working in the London and Brussels offices of a major international law firm, where he practiced litigation and commercial law, particularly where antitrust issues were involved.
