Pareja & Associats expands its legal offer with the incorporation of Júlia Samsó Lucas as Partner in charge of the firm’s new competition, regulatory and EU Law practice

Júlia Samsó Lucas joins Pareja & Associats as Partner in charge of competition, regulatory and European Union law. Júlia Samsó Lucas holds a degree in Law and a diploma in Land, Urban Planning and Environmental Law from Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, and a Master in European Law from the College of Europe in Bruges.

Prior to joining Pareja & Associats, she worked as a senior lawyer at US law firm Latham & Watkins, providing legal advice on competition, regulatory and EU Law to international clients based in the firm’s offices in Brussels, London and Paris. She then joined the Competition and Regulation department of the European telecommunications leader Orange, at its global headquarters in Paris.

With the incorporation of Júlia Samsó Lucas, Pareja & Associats expands its legal advice offering to areas of growing importance such as competition, regulatory and EU Law. “Júlia brings solid experience in areas of law that are perfectly complementary to our well-established administrative law practice”, said Carles Pareja, founding partner of Pareja & Associats. “We will continue to provide comprehensive and innovative legal solutions to our clients in the face of the rapid evolution and increasing complexity of the current regulatory framework, in which market dynamics, industry regulation and adapting to the regulatory framework of the European Union are becoming increasingly important. Júlia Samsó’s appointment makes even more sense in the current context of post-COVID recovery and the arrival of European funds, which will be tied to an increase in public procurement and far-reaching legislative changes to achieve the EU’s green and digital transition”, he added.
