Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

What went on at our conference and more

leave a comment »


As you might have realized, other commitments have prevented us from writing much in the past few days. I would like to convey my heartfelt gratitude to the European Commission for doing everything possible to systematically send lawyers work in December.

So, a quickie is in order today:

We have found out that the lawyers at BDK have done a summary of what went on at the Chillin’Competition conference. It was first mentioned by Nicholas Hirst (Politico) in his weekly email, and today it was circulated as part of Lexology’s daily email. It is about time that we link to it too; thanks its authors for coming over from Serbia for the conference, for drafting it and for the very kind words. You can read it here:                          Chillin’ at the Chillin’Competition Conference

In the coming days we will be commenting on a few recent developments of interest. We’re still thinking whether to write something about the fact that there will now be a preliminary ruling from the ECJ in one of the cases that has attracted more attention in this blog: the endive cartel. I’m, not kidding. For those of you that don’t remember it, click here (I still can’t help laughing at some of the stupidities in those posts… 🙂 )

Tomorrow I will be speaking on platforms (yes, again) at ITIF. Pablo also spoke about platforms last weekend at the European University Institute in Fiesole. By the way,  if Giorgio or anyone else at the EUI reads this, please realize how cruel it is that you invite Pablo there while I only get invited to talks in the cold, rainy, gray alleged European capital of jihadism…
