Francesca Miotto

Counsel

Brussels

Francesca acts on the full range of competition law issues across a variety of industries and has dealt extensively with the EU Commission, as well as other regulators around the world. 

Francesca's experience is truly diverse - she has represented clients in several EU investigations, including cartel settlement procedures and abuse of dominance issues. She also has particular experience in advising on complex multi-jurisdictional merger reviews, including two Phase II clearances before the EU Commission (one of which was based on a 'failing firm' defence).

Francesca has considerable experience representing clients before the European courts in Luxembourg and frequently advises on private enforcement matters, having developed particular expertise in this field since the implementation of the Private Damages Directive in the EU.

Francesca is a member of the life sciences group and regularly publishes and speaks on competition law and life sciences topics.

Francesca is qualified in the UK and Belgium and has spent time working in both the London and Brussels antitrust teams, as well as in our Paris office. She is fluent in Italian and has a good command of French.
