On May 21, the Financial Times published an article about S&C's hiring of senior European competition lawyer Michael Rosenthal titled “Sullivan & Cromwell to open Brussels office with antitrust hire.” Michael will lead the S&C Brussels office, the Firm's first new office since 1999. He is joining the Firm to work on EU and German competition matters, and has significant experience advising major technology and industrial companies that will enhance the Firm's ability to advise European clients on cross-border regulatory matters as the U.K. prepares to leave the EU. “We very rarely move laterally at the partnership or associate level,” Joseph Shenker said. “Whether or not there was Brexit, we would have brought Michael on board. The increasing globalisation of business and cross-border dealmaking is something that is inexorable. It has been a constant part of our business and it is growing.”
