Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Recent developments in EU Competition Law (5 February 2021)

leave a comment »

It has become a long-established tradition for our friends Fernando Castillo de la Torre and Eric Gippini-Fournier to coordinate a high-level, one-afternoon seminar in the context of the annual IEB competition law course.

This is the first year where participants will not be travelling to Madrid. While we very much hope that this will change next year, the online format (we will be using Microsoft Teams) will give you the opportunity to discover one of the best kept secrets in the world of competition law events. The program speaks for itself:
