leave a comment »


One of the yearly highlights of the competition law course that I co-direct in Madrid is the seminar coordinated by Fernando Castillo (the author of the most downloaded materials in competition law in 2016; see here) and Eric Gippini (one of our Friday slot interviewees; see here).

On this edition the seminar will take place on Friday 3 February under the title A year in review: competition law developments in 2016 (selected issues)”, and the programme is the following:


12:30 – 14:30: “The year in Brussels”

  • Gero Meessen (Member of the Legal Service, European Commission)
  • Eric Van Ginderachter (Director, Cartels Directorate, DG Competition, European Commission)
  • Mariarosaria Ganino (MLAB Abogados)

16:30 – 18:30: “The year in Luxembourg”

  • Fernando Castillo de la Torre (Legal Advisor, Legal Service, European Commission)
  • Nils Wahl (Advocate General, European Court of Justice)
  • Cani Fernández (Cuatrecasas)

A not-to-be-missed event and a perfect excuse to spend a weekend in Madrid…
