Chillin'Competition

Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

You’re invited

with 2 comments

It’s very impolite to speak about parties to which only you have been invited. Yet, this is exactly what Nicolas did last Friday!

Nico talked about all these competition law-related social events that are taking place in Brussels this week, without realizing that many of us have not been invited (I guess this was not on the piece of Social Do’s and Don’ts that he suggested on his post…)  😉

To compensate for my co-blogger’s mistake, I will free-ride on my firm to invite you to some free drinks extend a personal invitation to all readers of Chillin’Competition for THE competition law social event of the month in Brussels: the launch of the book “Market Power in EU Antitrust Law” (we had intended to write a review here, but our objectivity is so compromised that we will ask someone else better placed than us to do it) next Tuesday.

I’m not kidding; you’re all welcome to share a drink with us. You only have to confirm your attendance to the email address that appears on the invitation.

Hope to see you there!

P.S. Nicolas will miss it because he will be lecturing in Russia, so here is another incentive to come.

  2. As a follow-up to my original post, I thought your readers would be interested to learn that Marc gave (as one has come to expect) a fascinating and learned review of the origins of European competition law with a view to discussing the purpose and objective of European competition law.

    His broad lecture covered the various schools of economic and policy thinking throughout the last 150 years as well as a commentary on the phases of European competition law since 1957 and the current roles of DG Competition and the Court.

    Marc has indicated that he may take his presentation and develop it into an article over the summer. If so, this will be a must-read article of Borkian importance.
