Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Jones Day Paris announced recently that they had hired Eric Barbier de la Serre (formerly Latham & Watkins, Brussels).

He will join there Eric Morgan de Rivery, who is the resident partner in charge of competition cases.

I knew, as many, that Jones Day applied strict standards when it comes to appointing new partners. But that strict???

I mean, unless you are (i) a superstar antitrust lawyer; and (ii) you’re called  “Eric ___ de____”, the odds that you’ll make partner in Paris seem pretty low.

The bottom line: when it comes to HR, Jones Day clearly is no joker.
