On 12th May, the London School of Economics will be hosting a major conference that will look into the future of competition law and regulation. The event is the product of joint work with Thorsten Käseberg, who moonlights as a Visiting Professor at LSE on top of his duties at the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action.

The conference will address upcoming challenges from a legal, institutional and policy perspective. In addition, we will explore the lessons that can be drawn from sectoral regimes, in particular utility regulation and data protection.

We hope to see many of you in London in May. We will be providing all information on how to register (for free) and how to attend already next week: make sure you keep an eye on this blog and LSE Law School’s social media profiles (including Twitter and LinkedIn). In the meantime, do not hesitate to get in touch.

If you want a taster of the conference, here is the lineup of confirmed speakers:

On policy matters:

  • Andrea Coscelli (Chief Executive, Competition and Markets Authority);
  • Cani Fernández (President, Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia); and
  • Andreas Mundt (President, Bundeskartellamt).

On legal issues:

  • Fernando Castillo (Principal Legal Adviser, European Commission);
  • Heike Schweitzer (Professor of Law, Humboldt University of Berlin); and
  • Fabienne Siredey-Garnier (Vice-President, Autorité de la concurrence).

On institutional and coordination matters:

  • Sarah Cardell (General Counsel, Competition and Market Authority);
  • Niamh Dunne (Associate Professor, London School of Economics); and
  • Damien Gerard (Prosecutor General, Belgian Competition Authority).

On lessons from other regulatory regimes:

  • Claudia Berg (General Counsel, Information Commissioner’s Office);
  • Martin Cave (Chair, Ofgem); and
  • Lindsey Fussell (Board Member, Ofcom).

Enjoy the break!
