White & Case LLP

Kai advises public and corporate clients on all areas of competition law, with a particular focus on European state aid rules, often in relation to restructuring and privatisation issues. Clients benefit from his knowledge and insight concerning the application of EU public procurement requirements, and their interaction with state aid rules. Kai also provides authoritative advice on antitrust legislation in cartel investigations, and on competition compliance through programs and individual training sessions. His significant experience in this area includes one of the first two cartel settlement cases before the European Commission. Kai has developed a successful track record assisting clients with merger filings with EU and national competition authorities, as well as representing clients before the EU courts in Luxembourg, where he is involved in a number of ongoing litigations. His domestic and international experience spans an array of business sectors, including energy, financial services and aviation. Kai's knowledge of competition law is reinforced by his experience working as an official in the European Commission's Directorate General for Competition prior to joining White & Case. In this position, he was responsible for the enforcement of state aid policy at the (then newly created) Enforcement Unit. Prior to this, he handled individual state aid investigations in one of the Directorate's sectorial units. A regular speaker at industry events, Kai is also a prolific writer on legal developments that affect his clients' interests.
