CC anti-trust star leaves to set up boutique

The man who headed Clifford Chance's worldwide anti-trust team is leaving the firm after 15 years to set up a competition boutique based in Brussels and London.

A new competition practice has been launched in Brussels and London Xavier Pironet

Oliver Bretz is launching a boutique practice called Euclid Law. He had advised Barlcays on the Forex investigations - amongst other high profile roles. He told Legal Business: 'I see a gap in the London market for strategic advice for clients regardless of which law firm they are using. Law firms can only get a snapshot of a business, there is nobody that takes a holistic view so therefore the whole discourse around the client focus and industry focus [at international firms] is hollow because they will never have the complete overview.'
