We are pleased to announce that we have strengthened our practice group Competition & Regulated Markets with Berend Reuder (37) as new partner.
Berend specializes in Dutch and EU competition law and joins Stek from Houthoff. His expertise includes merger control procedures and cartel and dominance cases, representing clients in both civil and administrative proceedings.
Berend’s arrival also strengthens the Stek Healthcare team and the Stek Technology team. Berend’s extensive experience in the healthcare sector includes cartel investigations, assessment of the compatibility of cooperation agreements with the cartel prohibition and notification of mergers and acquisitions to the Dutch competition authority (Autoriteit Consument en Markt) as well as the Dutch healthcare authority (Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit). In the tech sector, Berend’s broad experience includes online platforms, dynamic pricing, licensing and the use of algorithms.
Berend Reuder: “Stek’s accessible excellence fits in well with my focus on quality, pragmatic approach and communication that clients value. Moreover, Stek combines high quality with competitive pricing, which meets the requirements of many clients, also in the healthcare and tech sectors. I look forward to contributing to Stek’s service.”
Ruben Elkerbout, partner Competition & Regulated Markets: “We are delighted that Berend has joined Stek. That such a talented and highly regarded attorney is willing to join and strengthen our practice, confirms that we have a winning proposition and are offering excellent service.
