Linklaters has launched an Amsterdam antitrust practice with the hiring of Paul Kreijger from Magic Circle rival Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. Kreijger, who specializes in European antitrust and regulatory matters and also has niche energy sector expertise, joins the firm as counsel. In addition to working with the firm’s Dutch clients, he will also work closely with the firm’s four-partner antitrust team in Brussels.

“We’re always looking to grow the product offering to our clients and [having local antitrust capability] has been on the list for some time,” the firm’s Amsterdam managing partner, Martijn Koopal, tells The Am Law Daily. “The office has been expanding very quickly and we’ve tried to keep that rate as controlled as possible, but with the corporate practice continuing to grow we felt this was the right time [to launch an antitrust practice].”
