Some time ago, we have been informed of a forthcoming large, big, huge move on the Brussels legal market.

The story is now official:

Our friends Trevor Soames, Miguel Rato, Stephen Mavroghenis, Götz Drauz and Geert Goeteyn are joining Shearman and Sterling as partners.

They take with them a bunch of top notch associates (we’ll report on that in the next days).

Best of luck to all of them at S&S.

Shame on me: I cheated on chillin’competition.

Yesterday, a short piece emanating from my computer was posted on adjudicating europe, a blog commenting on the case-law of the Court of Justice.

I attach hereafter a longer version of this post in the form of a working paper. As usual, I’d be happy to have your comments.

And BTW, it deals with the judgment of the ECJ in VEBIC, a case that we covered on this blog a few weeks ago.
