Counsel at Van Bael & Bellis


Catherine specialises in representing clients before the European Commission in complex merger control cases, including Phase 2 proceedings and other transactions requiring remedies, and in antitrust and abuse of dominance investigations. Her experience spans a wide range of sectors, including aviation, steel, chemicals and other basic industries.

Catherine also advises on the EU Foreign Subsidies Regulation (FSR), both on a standalone basis and in conjunction with other regulatory processes liable to affect M&A transactions, such as the EU merger control regime and foreign direct investment rules.
