Baker McKenzie has announced the promotion of three new partners to its Global Antitrust & Competition Group.

Catherine Stillman, Joost Haans and Fang-Yi Jen, who are based in the firm's New York, Brussels and Taipei offices respectively, have been promoted to partnership.  

Catherine Stillman focuses her practice on antitrust and complex commercial litigation representing clients across industries in the defense of merger challenges, class actions, and civil and criminal investigations. Joost  Haans, who co-leads the Belgian Competition Law Practice and the Dutch Competition Law Practice, specializes in merger control, investigations by the European Commission and the Belgian and Dutch competition authorities, and general compliance advice focusing on distribution systems and abuse of dominance. Fang-Yi Jen will bolster Baker McKenzie's "Elite" (GCR100 – 2018)  Taipei Antitrust and Competition Practice focusing on advising clients on merger control, antitrust compliance and defense litigation in Taiwan.

Commenting on these promotions Fiona Carlin, Global Chair of the Antitrust & Competition Group, said "the promotion of Catherine, Joost and Fang-Yi to partnership reflects the strength of our talent pipeline and the continued growth of our global practice in key markets."  

Catherine, Joost, and Fang-Yi join a group of over 125 partners who lead Baker McKenzie's 300+ strong antitrust & competition practice operating in 47 markets around the world.  Ranked in the "Top 5" competition practices in GCR's Global Elite list since 2015, Baker McKenzie is known for it's work representing clients on complex multijurisdictional merger control, global cartels and antitrust compliance work and competition litigation cases. Over the past year the team has been centrally involved in Abbott's acquisition of Alere Inc. and Unilever's acquisition of Quala's personal products division. They've represented a major multinational in the first ever enforcement action under Hong Kong’s new competition law and defended Knorr-Bremse AG in the highest-profile antitrust conduct enforcement matter brought by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) in the new Trump administration concerning “no-poach” or non-solicitation agreements.
