Sylvain Justier has also considerable expertise in several regulated sectors, particularly those of telecoms and rail transport. Beyond the antitrust cases handled in these sectors, he intervenes on all the regulatory issues encountered by his clients and assists them, especially in the context of sanctions procedures or dispute settlement before sectoral regulators (numerous procedures before ARCEP and ART in particular).
He is recommended in competition and regulation by all professional league tables and frequently speaks at major conferences dedicated to these sectors of activity.
