SJ Berwin hire boosts McDermott antitrust practice

McDermott Will & Emery has bolstered its antitrust and competition practice with the capture of SJ Berwin partner Wilko van Weert.

He will be based in the firm’s EU competition team in Brussels. Van Weert said: “The firm has a lot of appeal for me, particularly in the area of IP-related antitrust cases.

SJ Berwin’s competition practice really punches above its weight if you look at the size of the firm. But I’m keen to do more IP-related matters and already have that work on my desk.”
