Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

The sharing economy- Legal Challenges

with one comment

Sharing economy

I spoke yesterday at this event in Madrid about the legal challenges brought by the sharing economy, and about how these can help us improve existing regulation in many markets. This is a topic that elicits very conflicting and sometimes passionate views, but, as I explained, without frictions between reality and the law there would be no progress (and much worse, no lawyers).

The topic is not directly related to competition law, although it has much to do with EU Law and with the interaction between the law and the competitive process. It also has some links (althoguh less than it may seem) with a topic I will be discussing in Brussels in a few days: should online platforms be regulated?

My presentation was in Spanish, but I’m so proud of the ppt I used (the result of an unevenly shared effort with my friend Enrique Colmenero) that I can´t help posting it here. You will see an app that we have created with am interface that might seem familiar and that enables you to find different categories of lawyers near you 😉
