Member of the Paris Bar since 2007, Franck Audran is specialized in French and European competition law (cartels, dominant positions, merger control). He intervenes in litigation proceedings, whether before the control authorities (cartels and abuse of dominant position) or the commercial courts (compensation claims, restrictive competition practices, etc.), as well as in the context of complex merger operations requiring, for some of them, commitments and/or the opening of an in-depth investigation phase, whether before the French Competition Authority, the Commission or the national competition authorities inside or outside of the EU. Franck has acquired particular expertise in the digital economy sector by assisting major digital players in their development phase, but also institutional clients in adapting their activities to new online consumption patterns. After joining Gide’s Bucharest office in 2007, Franck joined the Economic and European Law team in the Paris office. He was also seconded to the firm’s Budapest office, which he co-headed from 2014 to 2015. He holds a post-graduate degree (DEA) in Business Law and Economics from the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne (2005) and a Master’s degree in European Law from the University of Erlangen, Germany (2004).
