Gide partner since 1999, Antoine Choffel died suddenly on Wednesday 16 March 2022, aged 57.
Born in Paris in 1964, Antoine Choffel had joined the firm in 1989 and was made partner in 1999. A member of the Competition & International Trade practice group of Gide, Antoine was a resident of the Brussels office from 1996 to 2000, before returning to the Paris office. Antoine was one of the best lawyers in competition law, rewarded on numerous occasions. His kindness and sense of humour were equalled only by his fighting spirit, helping him win countless legal battles for his clients.
Antoine Choffel was vice-president of the Association des Avocats Pratiquant le Droit de la Concurrence (APDC), through which he was largely instrumental in working for the protection of the rights of the defence.
