Suyong Kim


Suyong Kim

Based in London as Global Co-Head of Hogan Lovell's Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice and with extensive experience of working in the Brussels competition environment, Suyong is one of only a handful of EU practitioners equally at home handling complex mergers and JVs, high stakes cartel and abuse of market power investigations, as well as the resulting appeals and damages litigation before the EU and national courts. She is recognised as a leader in the field of competition/EU law and praised for her ‘accuracy of analysis’, ‘responsiveness’ and ‘ability to break down complex issues into effective and pragmatic advice’.

Suyong has an MBA from the London Business School and offers clients an acute understanding of the commercial issues they face when navigating antitrust challenges. Suyong's practice is notable not only for its coverage across different aspects of EU and UK competition law, but also for the varied sectors (both regulated and unregulated) in which her clients operate. She has particular experience of the FMCG, financial services, media, telecommunications, energy, retailing, and transport sectors.

'Suyong Kim is recognised for both her contentious and non-contentious capabilities. Clients say: 'She is fantastic at quickly making the issues accessible to people who don't have a competition law background'
