Chambers Global 2014
Dr. Jens Peter Schmidt is a partner in the Brussels and Dusseldorf offices of Mayer Brown’s Antitrust & Competition practice, and partner-in-charge of the Brussels office.

A focus of his counseling concerns merger control risk analyses and complex merger control notifications; he has gained considerable experience in responsibly handling second phase (in-depth) investigations before the European Commission and the German Federal Cartel Office (Bundeskartellamt). He regularly coordinates multi-jurisdictional merger filings.

Jens Peter also represents clients in cartel case investigations, structures compliance programmes, and provides assessments of vertical and horizontal arrangements, including information exchanges. He advises on state aid issues, in particular in the context of the financial crisis.

IFLR 2015 Guide to the World’s Leading Financial Law Firms ranks Jens Peter as a Leading Lawyer for EU Competition. According to Chambers Global 2015 clients value his business-oriented and pragmatic advice, saying: “He is keen and experienced, and always provides us with a very short and clear answer”. German directory JUVE 2013/2014 states that he ”.elongs to the circle of well-established antitrust lawyers at EU level.” Chambers Europe 2012 states that clients note his responsiveness and strategic advice.

Jens Peter joined Mayer Brown in Cologne in 2001 and, in addition, the firm’s Brussels office in 2002 where he now serves as partner in charge of the office. Before 2001, he had practiced law for three years in the Dusseldorf office of another major global law firm. Between 1995 and 1997 he worked at the Institute for Public Law at University of Bonn. He is fluent in English in addition to his native German.
