Chillin’Competition in Politico

with one comment

We have just been made aware that the following text was published in todays’s Playbook by Politico. We are very grateful, but sexy?? ūüėČ 

Only one clarification: it’s Nicolas, not me, who deserves credit for founding the blog!

BRINGING SEXY TO COMPETITION POLICY: The Who’s Who of Brussels’ competition world will congregate today at a conference organized by the blog Chillin’Competition. In a barren landscape dotted by multiple dry competition law journals, Chillin’Competition has attracted a fervent readership with its sometimes irreverent, sometimes serious look at European antitrust.
The blog was founded by Alfonso Lamadrid, an associate at law firm Garrigues, and Nicolas Petit, a law professor at Li√®ge University, in 2009. It is now run by Lamadrid and Pablo Ib√°√Īez Colomo, an associate professor at the LSE. Its long-running ‚ÄúThe Friday Slot‚ÄĚ puts a series of offbeat personal and professional questions to eminent practitioners, judges and officials, including competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager, Google outside counsel Maurits Dolmans and General Court Judge Ian Forrester.
