Next Friday 31 January 2020 we will be holding the traditional annual seminar on “Recent developments in EU Competition Law and Policy” at the IEB in Madrid. The seminar is coordinated by Fernando Castillo and Eric Gippini and is part of the wider specialist course that I co-direct there (and that Pablo inaugurated last week). It is also a great opportunity for a weekend escape to Spain (a selling point I’ve tried to downplay at home).

The program:

16.00-17.45. Enforcement: Reports from the frontline

Damages in practice

Patricia Pérez. Associate, Cuatrecasas

Marc Barennes. Executive Director, CDC Cartel Damage Claims

The revival of interim measures and the birth of restorative remedies

Peter Schedereit. European Commission, DG Comp

Alfonso Lamadrid. Partner, Garrigues

18.00-19.45. Vertical agreements entering 2020

Isabel Pereira Alves. European Commisison, DG Comp

Patricia Lorenzo. Vice President, Compass Lexecon.

Sergio Baches. European Commission, Legal Service.

José María Jímenez Laiglesia. Partner, Latham&Watkins.
