Sarah Subrémon has close to 20 years of experience in European and French competition law in Paris, Brussels and London. She is a former senior official with the French Competition Authority, the Competition Market Authority, the European Commission and a senior executive of a company specialized in recovering damages in cartel cases.

At bureau Brandeis Paris, Sarah focuses her practice on both private and public antitrust enforcement. Throughout her career, Sarah has dealt with all types of antitrust cases and procedures.

In terms of administrative procedures, Sarah has been involved in settlement, commitment, interim relief, and sanctions proceedings brought before the European Commission and the French Competition Authority. She has also coordinated procedures before these authorities with numerous other competition authorities in the EU and the UK.

Regarding her private antitrust enforcement practice, Sarah assists French, EU and foreign companies in obtaining damages for the antitrust injuries they suffered.
