France

With one of the largest antitrust teams in France, Vogel & Vogel maintains a busy full-service practice. Founders Louis Vogel and Who’s Who Legalnominee Joseph Vogel are the two founding partners. Géraldine Demme joined recently as counsel and head of the German desk. On the merger front, the firm advised Belgian media group Rossel in acquiring assets from Hersant Media Group; the deal was cleared at Phase I. 

The firm is standing counsel to telecoms company Bouygues in competition matters and won a landmark ruling at the European Court of Justice regarding state aid offered to France Télécom. Vogel & Vogel is also representing Bouygues in a €1.4 billion damages lawsuit against mobile operators Orange and SFR. Other behavioural work includes gaining an 80 per cent fine reduction for pork slaughterhouse Gad Group in a French cartel probe, and another slash in fines for a chartered accountancy association.
