Joost van Roosmalen

Associate


As an associate in our regulatory team in The Hague, I use my broad knowledge of competition law and regulatory matters to advise our clients on both contentious and non-contentious matters.

Businesses dealing in the communications, postal and information technology (IT) sectors often see themselves confronted with complex regulations, having to deal with both European and national laws. I regularly advise both incumbents as well as entrants in these sectors in disputes against competitors and supervisory authorities. This has offered me valuable experience in advising clients on day-to-day regulatory issues, as well as in complex court proceedings.

Clients benefit from my regulatory background, working as counsel for the Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM). I am experienced in dealing with European and national laws, and committed to providing my clients with practical and concrete advice.

During my studies of International Economic Law and International Business Law, I focused on both Competition Law as well as regulatory matters. I use this knowledge, combined with my regulatory background, to work together with clients to reach their full potential in regulated markets.

I chose to become a lawyer at Bird & Bird because of our great reputation in the tech & comms sector. I am dedicated to live up to that reputation.

I am a member of Bird & Bird's Tech & Comms Group.
