Hogan Lovells (Dusseldorf)
Lawyer (Partner)

Martin Sura has more than 20 years of experience in advising and defending clients in antitrust agency investigations into complex mergers or alleged cartel conduct, and in antitrust litigation, both in Germany and internationally. Martin’s "outstanding industry knowledge" (Legal 500) has recently led clients from the automotive, building materials, food and retail, industrial goods and insurance sectors to entrust him with guiding them through high stakes investigations and litigation. Martin has a track record in obtaining merger approvals in concentrated industries, often with no or only light concessions to the agencies or in helping his clients to get off lightly in cartel investigations. His "insight into the workings of the regulators" (Legal 500) and his courtroom experience make him an advisor of choice in the growing area of private enforcement of cartel damages. Clients and peers alike regard Martin as a leader in his field and praise his "personal attention to the instructions" (Legal 500), or his "work ethic and professional approach" (Chambers). Martin is ranked as a leading competition law practitioner by The International Who’s Who of Competition Lawyers and Economists, Chambers, PLC, and JUVE. He co-authors the leading Langen/Bunte commentary on German and EU competition law and is a frequent speaker at conferences. Martin leads Hogan Lovells’ German Antitrust practice and has worked in our Hamburg and Brussels offices before taking his current position in our Dusseldorf office.
