Biography

Maurits J.F.M. Dolmans is a partner based in the London office.

Mr. Dolmans’ practice focuses on EU, UK, and international competition law, as well as EU regulatory, and EU intellectual property law. Mr. Dolmans has extensive experience in the information technology, telecom, media and entertainment, as well as in energy, medical devices, chemicals and manufacturing industries. He appeared in proceedings before the EU Commission and the EU courts, national courts and national competition authorities of several Member States, and ICC and NAI arbitrations. Many of his competition cases involve licensing or refusals to license, European standardization, access to networks, mergers, joint ventures and other transactions in the IT, telecom and other areas, intellectual property arbitration and litigation, abuses of dominance and cartels. He has published widely in these areas. Recent public cases involve EU clearance for Google's acquisition of Motorola, UK OFT clearance for Google's acquisition of Beatthatquote, successful closure of a range of complaints against IBM for alleged abuse of dominance, representation of Google in a wide range of matters involving alleged abuse of dominance relating to patents, search services, and advertising. Other matters include representation of various complainants in Commission and European Court proceedings against Microsoft concerning the interface between IP and competition (e.g., disclosure of Microsoft interoperability information), unilateral conduct (tying of media player and browser, pricing practices, etc), leading to the successful 2004 EC decision, the rejection of interim measures requested by Microsoft and the rejection of Microsoft's appeal to the European Court in 2007, as well as the 2009 Microsoft Interoperability Undertaking and the 2009 Microsoft Browser Choice Commitment. Another recent series of highly visible cases concerns the interaction between international standardization and antitrust and IP, including licensing practices and abuse of dominance.

Mr. Dolmans is distinguished by Chambers "The World's Leading Lawyers" and other publications as a leading lawyer in the areas of Competition/Antitrust and Communications.

Mr. Dolmans joined the firm in 1985 and became a partner in 1994. He received an LL.M. degree from Columbia University in 1985 and a Master of Laws from the Rijks Universiteit Leiden in The Netherlands in 1984.
