He is one of the few lawyers representing foreign governments in their dealings with the European Union.
Yohan has notable experience in administrative and court proceedings involving the European institutions, and in particular the European Commission, having represented multinational companies in the context of landmark dumping, subsidy, antitrust and state aid cases, as well as infringement proceedings over the last decade.
Most recently, Yohan has been advising clients on various aspects of the legal and policy implications of Brexit.
Yohan regularly publishes articles and speaks widely on all aspects of his practice.
