Compass Lexecon is delighted to announce the appointment of Senior Vice President Dennis Beling as Brussels office head, effective from 1 May. Dennis will join our Brussels team to provide valuable leadership for the firm’s continued expansion and expertise in the market.

Dennis is a highly regarded competition economist with more than 18 years of experience in a wide range of competition issues, including cartel investigations, merger control and the quantification of economic efficiencies in merger cases, abuse of market power, market studies, applications for exemption from competition rules and cartel damages. He has significant expertise advising on cases before the European Commission, as well as national competition authorities and courts. Dennis works across a broad range of industries, including high technology, financial services, construction, chemicals, energy and transport.

Dennis specializes in merger control and has extensive experience in providing economic advice in the context of large multi-jurisdictional transactions, with recent experience advising on several mergers in the Asia Pacific region. He also has strong experience advising on a range of issues in the digital economy.

In recent years, Dennis has bolstered Compass Lexecon’s Asia Pacific expansion, leading teams based in Singapore and Hong Kong. Dennis will continue to assist clients before regulators across Asia Pacific on a wide range of competition related work, with regular travel to the region.

Prior to joining Compass Lexecon, Dennis was the Chief Economist for Hong Kong’s Competition Commission, where he contributed economic analysis on a broad range of competition and policy issues. Dennis graduated from The University of Hamburg and received a Master’s in Economics from The University of Sydney.

Jorge Padilla, Senior Managing Director of Compass Lexecon said, “I have been working with Dennis from the first day he joined the economic consulting business; most recently, we have worked together both in Europe and Asia. He is a great economist but also has the right skills to successfully manage a large office such as Brussels. He cares about clients and also about our economists and leads by example. I trust he will see our business grow further working with Compass Lexecon’s colleagues in Asia, Europe, and the US. Compass Lexecon is a global consultancy and is naturally being led by people with global experience.”
