Our Brussels office is led by lawyers with more than 40 years’ experience in the capital of Europe.
Decisions made by European Union institutions have an impact on business operations across the EU Member States and beyond. Clients seek advice on the formulation and application of EU law and effective representation of their interests to ensure unhindered market access, efficient commercial operations and continuing regulatory compliance.
Our multidisciplinary teams, comprising lawyers and scientists, offer in-depth, seamless advice where more than one area of law is concerned: for example, we address the competition law aspects of chemicals rules and insurance regulations, and the impact of nanotechnologies on insurance policies and global trade. We have built a reputation for constructive dialogue with policy-makers and regulators at the EU, national and international levels. Belgian, British, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Spanish, Swiss and US lawyers in the office advise on matters involving their national legal systems.
Our clients are national and multinational companies, European and international trade associations, and public institutions.
- Competition/Antitrust and State Aid
- Environment, Life Sciences and Nanotechnologies

Steptoe’s network of offices works in a fully integrated fashion to provide clients with global solutions for their activities. Multijurisdictional transactions and investigations that involve high-risk legal compliance, such as anti-corruption, export controls, and economic sanctions, are areas where the Brussels office provides client services, working where needed with our Washington, DC, London, and Beijing offices.
Belgian Law advice – corporate, commercial, dispute resolution, financial services and property – is provided via privileged relationships with specialised firms.
Our Brussels practice areas are consistently recognised by leading legal publications, including the European Middle East Africa Legal 500, Chambers and Who’s Who Legal. Steptoe is well known for its international trade, intellectual property protection, litigation, regulatory and tax work.
