Mathew O'Reagan

Matthew O’Regan, specialist competition and economic regulation barrister at St John’s Chambers, is a co-editor of the 4th edition of Garzaniti, Electronic Communications, Audiovisual Services and the Internet – EU Competition Law & Regulation, which was recently published by Sweet & Maxwell.  Also edited by Laurent Garzanti (partner, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, Brussels), Prof. Dr. Peggy Valcke (KU Leuven, Belgium) and Prof. Dr. Alexandre de Streel (University of Namur, Belgium) and written by a team of experts drawn from private practice, academia and the European Commission.

This new edition provides readers with a clear and comprehensive analysis of the relevant EU laws and regulations, as well as the application of EU competition law, within these sectors and takes account of recent legal and regulatory developments in these dynamic, fast-moving and increasingly converging sectors. As well as co-editing the chapters on competition law and State aid, Matthew also authored the chapter on merger control, in which he examines, with reference to the extensive case law of the European Courts and its decision-making practice, how the European Commission examines mergers and joint ventures in these sectors and its approach to remedies when it identifies competition concerns.

Matthew has extensive experience of merger control proceedings, in particular before the European Commission under the EU Merger Regulation and before the Competition and Markets Authority in the UK, as well as before other competition authorities worldwide.
