Chillin’Competition in Politico
We have just been made aware that the following text was published in todays’s Playbook by Politico. We are very grateful, but sexy?? 😉
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 Liège University, in 2009. It is now run by Lamadrid and Pablo Ibáñez Colomo, an associate professor at the LSE. Its long-running “The Friday Slot” 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.
