Since its establishment in 1989, Jones Day's Brussels Office has grown to more than 55 lawyers. Strategically located at the heart of the European Union, the Brussels Office advises clients on a wide range of regulatory, corporate/commercial, litigation and arbitration, tax, international trade, and labor law issues relevant to corporations doing business in Belgium, the EU, and worldwide.

The Brussels Office provides a broad array of services to assist the Firm's national and international clients in negotiating the EU's complex legal environment. Our regulatory, transactional, and litigation practice lawyers are regularly recognized by Chambers and other legal directories as leading practitioners.

We advise in areas such as EU and Member State competition law (including M&A clearances, state aid, cartels, and abuse of dominance); cybersecurity, privacy, and data protection (including data protection audits and international data transfers); sector-specific regulatory issues in the critical, cutting-edge sectors of life sciences (including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, food, and cosmetics); chemicals (including REACH and biocides legislation, WEEE, and RoHS); electronic communications; technology and media; and energy.  We regularly represent clients before the European and national courts, as well as EU and national regulatory authorities.

The Brussels Office also has significant experience in multinational transactions (M&A, joint ventures, "greenfield" investments), corporate/commercial matters, litigation and arbitration, real estate, tax planning and corporate structuring, and labor law. We also have deep industry-specific knowledge in automotive, aviation, financial services, real estate, fashion and apparel, toys, and other consumer products.

The Brussels Office embodies Jones Day’s core principle of "One Firm Worldwide," offering our clients the exceptional strength of seamless access to the Firm's global resources. Our lawyers are part of an integrated worldwide organization of more than 2,500 lawyers, including more than 575 lawyers in ten key business centers throughout Europe.

Over the past two decades, the office has emerged as one of the largest of any U.S. law firm in Brussels. Our lawyers hail from jurisdictions worldwide, but all share a firm grounding and experience in Brussels. Our office serves as headquarters for Jones Day’s European competition practice, with some 40 lawyers in eight cities.
