Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

A new kid on the blog: Introducing Pablo Ibañez Colomo

with one comment

As I said in my farewell post to Nicolas, I don’t think it’s good for this blog to be run only by a practitioner like myself, so we have a “new” luxury addition to the team.

As of today, Pablo Ibáñez Colomo, who’s already been writing here for the past few months, has finally cracked and will join Chillin’Competition as editor. Most readers of this blog already know Pablo. He’s an Associate Professor of Law at the London School of Economics; prior to that was a teaching assistant at the College of Europe for three years (I was actually his student there), completed his PhD at the European University Institute in Florence (he was also Visiting Researcher at Stanford during his research period) and, among other things, is also one of the authors of the best competition law textbook ever written (in Spanish).

More importantly, like Nicolas, Pablo is also a reputed young and independent academic, a brilliant guy, a very good friend, a person whose ideas often differ from mine. On top of that, and in case you haven’t realized yet, he’s probably even geekier than Nicolas and myself 🙂

P.S. We will also be accepting more “guests posts”, so feel free to contact us (alfonso.lamadrid@garrigues.com and P.Ibanez-Colomo@lse.ac.uk) in case you have an urge to get anything off your chest.
