Professional Biography:

Rafique has worked in offices around our network (London, New York, and Brussels). He has an LLM in international business law, and combines a strong commercial edge with a global outlook. His practice focuses on all aspects of European competition law, with a particular emphasis on projects with a worldwide angle.
On mandates, his first priority is to understand his clients’ business and commercial objectives. He maintains close contact with his client teams in order to ensure collaborative working relationships and the confidence and peace of mind that his clients appreciate.
He has built significant sectoral experience through transactions in the chemicals and plastics, mining, and air transport and rail sectors, among others. He works in mainly global teams for clients in Europe, the Middle East, Japan, Australia, South Africa and Russia. His multinational clients come to him for practical, creative solutions based on a thorough understanding of how their industry operates.
Rafique complements his client work by lecturing in competition law at King’s College London and the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
Firm Overview:

We want to be the law firm that clients turn to for help on the mandates that matter most to them, wherever in the world that may be.

To succeed, we must be widely recognised as standing apart from other firms because our people are exceptional and because we are international and integrated in the way we work, we add value in everything we do and we are uncompromisingly committed to our values.
