Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

SAVE THE DATE – 14 September: Chillin’ event in London (@LSELaw)

leave a comment »


For many reasons, 2018 has been an eventful year. For the two of us. Some of these reasons are professional. You will not be surprised if I told you that I am immensely proud to have been promoted to a chair at LSE. And (it’s been in the making so long that it feels unreal) my book is coming out in a couple of weeks.

Alfonso and I felt these two landmarks gave us a wonderful excuse to have an event in London, at LSE Law (by Lincoln’s Inn Fields) – when the weather is still nice (well, fingers crossed) and classes have not yet started.

The idea is to bring some friends and colleagues and discuss some of the major themes I explored in my book. We will have three panels. And for a change, some non-competition lawyers will come along to provide a different perspective.

The event will take place in the afternoon of 14 September – in case you’re wondering, and you’re not based in London, it’s a Friday (and thus hopefully easier for those living or working elsewhere).

Marc van der Woude, Vice-President at the General Court and eminent competition lawyer, has been kind enough to accept our invitation to deliver a keynote speech.

In addition, the event will feature the following luminaries:

  • Paul Daly (University of Cambridge)
  • Michal Gal (University of Haifa)
  • Damien Gerard (European Commission)
  • Eric Gippini Fournier (European Commission)
  • Carol Harlow (LSE)
  • Andriani Kalintiri (LSE, and soon City Law School)
  • Bill Kovacic (George Washington University and King’s College London)
  • Alfonso Lamadrid (Garrigues)
  • Ioannis Lianos (University College London)
  • Joana Mendes (University of Luxembourg)
  • Jorge Padilla (Compass Lexecon)
  • Denis Waelbroeck (Ashurst and Université libre de Bruxelles)

Please watch this space for news about the programme and about how to register. We look forward to seeing many of you there for this occasion.
