Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Until recently, I ignored that the Court was turning 60.

A book was published on this occasion. I had the great honour of being invited to write a paper in it.

There was also a formal lunch yesterday in Luxemburg. And I must say I have been quite lucky in terms of seat placement. My immediate left neighbor was Rafael Garcia Valdecasas y Fernandez, who was the ‘juge rapporteur’ in Airtours. And just on my right, Advocate General Juliane Kokott, who writes most opinions in competition cases…

For a competiton geek of my kind, this was clearly the best lunch I could think of.
