Julian Joshua

Julian Joshua, a partner in the Brussels office of Steptoe & Johnson LLP since March 2011, focuses his practice on complex international cartel investigations, advocacy before the European Commission and appeals to the European courts. Nominated by GCR as one of five top international cartel lawyers, he specialises in contentious matters and the strategic response to global antitrust investigations by multiple enforcement authorities. He currently defends large multinational corporations in both worldwide and European cartel cases, including Air Cargo, Marine Hose and Freight Forwarders. During a 27-year career in the European Commission, he led many successful investigations into Europe-wide price-fixing conspiracies in major industries, and was the architect of the Commission’s investigation and enforcement mechanisms in complex cases, including the dawn raid and the cartel offence. The co-author of a seminal work on cartels, he has also produced many articles and commentaries on cartel law and practice, evidence, defence strategy, criminal law and international enforcement, including extradition. He is a frequent speaker at antitrust law programmes and serves on the editorial boards of Competition Law Insight and the New Journal of European Criminal Law.
