Steptoe & Johnson announced this week that Charles Whiddington has joined the firm as a partner in the Antitrust and Competition practice. He will reside in the Brussels office. Whiddington’s arrival follows that of antitrust partner Damon Kalt, who recently rejoined the firm in the Washington office.
Whiddington’s practice focuses on supporting international clients involved in cartel and sector investigations by national or European Commission authorities, and advising them on the competition aspects of mergers and joint ventures. He also provides strategic advice on licensing and distribution.
In welcoming Whiddington to the firm, Steptoe Chair Phil West remarked: “Charles brings considerable experience in competition matters. He has successfully represented a number of international clients before the European Commission in cartel investigations, including a large financial institution in the Libor/Tibor investigations and a shipping company in the car carrier cartel probe. His deep experience in these investigations coupled with his experience handling the competition aspects of mergers and acquisitions, greatly complements the antitrust work being handled by lawyers in our US offices.”
