Bernard Amory represents numerous clients before the European Commission, national courts, and competition authorities in Europe and the European Courts in Luxembourg. He is the Partner-in-Charge of the Brussels Office, after overseeing the Firm's European Antitrust & Competition Law Practice for 16 years.

His practice has focused on antitrust and telecoms for more than 25 years. He was described by the Commercial Lawyer as "the telecom pioneer” and has received year after year the "regulatory communications lawyer of the year” by Who’s Who Legal.

Bernard's recent or ongoing representations relating to Article 101 (restrictive practices) include: the air cargo case and the One World Alliance for American Airlines, the vitamins case for Aventis, the marine hoses case for Parker Hannifin, the paper and forestry products and industrial bags cases for UPM, the bananas case for Dole, the credit card investigation for MasterCard, the O2/T-Mobile infrastructure sharing and national roaming case on behalf of O2, and the Apple iTunes pricing investigation.

Some of the leading merger cases in which Bernard has represented the notifying party include: BT/MCI and BT/AT&T, Total/Petrofina, Renault/Nissan, Procter & Gamble/Gillette, and Warner Music/Parlophone. He also acts for intervening parties and complainants in merger cases, such as for Warner Music Group in EMI/Sony and EMI/Universal, BT in Vodafone/Mannesmann, Apple in Sony/BMG, Tele Denmark in Telia/Telenor, and AT&T in MCI/WorldCom/Sprint.

He also has significant experience in Article 102 (abuses), including the roaming case on behalf of Telefonica-O2, Microsoft on behalf of a third party, and Dell in the Intel rebates case. His experience on state aid and state measures include the representation of BUPA in the risk equalization scheme in Ireland and work for Bouygues. He also serves as an arbitrator.
