Salomé’s practice covers all industry sectors, but is widely known for her particular experience and in-depth knowledge in consumer goods and services. In 2013, she received the International Law Office’s (ILO) EU Competition Lawyer of the Year Client Choice Award, which recognizes those lawyers and law firms around the world that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. Clients described her as providing ’brilliant and spot-on advice on the legal issues, as well as on the required strategy to get the best results", as well as her ’extensive experience with both competition law and consumer protection law [which] sets her apart from most practitioners’. Salomé is associate professor of EU competition law at IE Law School and a fellow of the Centre for European Studies/IE in Madrid. She frequently writes and speaks on issues relating to competition. She is the president of the Harvard Club of Belgium and a member of the board of the global Harvard Alumni Association (HAA).
