    Goals / Remit

    Bird & Bird is an international law firm with a focus on helping organisations being changed by technology and the digital world. With over 1300 lawyers in 28 offices across Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, we're ready to help companies wherever they are in the world.

    We create innovative solutions that solve problems and streamline processes to help companies be more efficient. We constantly seek new and creative ways to deliver services that help companies reduce costs, manage risks and open up new opportunities to grow their business:

    To provide a smarter service, we automate legal processes.

    To manage the legal workload of clients, we collaborate with them to create bespoke platforms that deliver the insight they need.

    To help businesses thrive in a digital world, we partner with like-minded professionals who share our commitment.

    In 1998, we became one of the first law firms to organise around key sectors, enabling us to share our deep industry knowledge more effectively across the firm. We combine this commercial understanding of our clients’ businesses with our leading legal expertise and the international reach our clients need to achieve their goals.

    Main EU files targeted

    Our Brussels office, which brings together over 40 lawyers from more than 10 different countries, offers expert advice across a broad range of areas including commercial, corporate, competition, employment, privacy and data protection, intellectual property, regulatory and tax. In particular, we closely follow all issues related to the EU Digital Single Market strategy.

    Our team in Brussels has strong expertise in the information technology, communications, life sciences, electronics, aviation and aerospace, automotive, energy and food and beverage sectors. Combining our broad legal expertise with our deep knowledge of these industries, we pride ourselves on delivering innovative legal solutions with a commercial approach.

    The Brussels office is also the hub of Bird & Bird's international Competition & EU practice. The team has a proven track record in all areas of EU and national competition law, including merger control, cartel, abuse and state aid investigations, the competition law aspects of cooperation, distribution and licensing agreements and issues at the intersection of IP and competition law. The group also stands out through its vast experience in the field of EU litigation.
