Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Facts of (our professional) life

with one comment

Even though it’s only Tuesday, a few people in the Brussels competition law world are surely having a long and tough week. A number of us have been badly damaged by the 4-day feast incredible wedding we attended last weekend at a bullfighting ring in León (no kidding).

I’m telling you this for two reasons:

The first is that an official at DG Comp challenged me to write a post here about how among those attending there was a good mix of Commission officials, Court clerks, economists and lawyers (both in-house and from a few firms), which reveals how tiny our professional world is. This is undisputably a fact of our professional life. I’ll give you one example: two of the people (an in-house lawyer and an economist) with whom I’m currently working on a daily basis were present. Thank God we didn’t engage in any professional discussions, as I wouldn’t know how to bill it  😉

The second reason why I’m telling you this is that I’m trying to justify why I don’t feel in shape to come up with anything original to write, which is why I’m linking to another blog’s (Abovethelaw.com) content also dealing with facts of our professional life:  How to Drive Associates Nuts!  and  What Drives Partners Nuts?

  1. The question remains: was the Commission official working on this case also with you at the wedding?
