Lawyer (of Counsel)

Götz Drauz has left Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati to join Sullivan & Cromwell’s new Brussels office currently. He was a senior competition counsel in Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati’s Brussels office. His practice is focused on European Union and German antitrust and competition law, and he has represented companies in some of the most significant merger, conduct, and cartel investigations in Europe. His client base spans a wide range of industries, including aviation, consumer products, chemicals, defense, energy, food products, pharmaceuticals, rail transport, software, and telecommunications. Named an "elite" practitioner by Global Competition Review, Götz is recognized in all the principal directories as a leading EC and German competition attorney. Prior to entering private practice, Götz served at the European Commission for 25 years, most recently as the Deputy Director-General for Competition and previously as the head of the Merger Task Force. In these roles, he managed and coordinated all of the EC’s merger control activity for nearly a decade.
