Event description

Description

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the role of the EU Courts in competition law exploring possible myths, gaps and challenges.

We would like to explore both what has happened in the past 60 years and what could, should or might happen in a new scenario, with an enlarged General Court, a fall in the number of annulment proceedings and an apparent rise in preliminary references following the decentralization (and delegalization?) of competition enforcement, among others. We intend to discuss theory and practice objectively from different perspectives.

We have invited a number of high-level speakers coming from the Courts, the Commission, private practice and academia to share a brief reflection (within 5 minutes) on any issue related to judicial review on which they may have strong or interesting views. We will then have some time to discuss every point also hearing the views of other attendees.

Speakers include: Advocate General Nils Wahl, General Court Judge Krystyna Kowalic-Bańczyk, former Judge Nicholas Forwood, Jean François Bellis, Denis Waelbroeck, Trevor Soames, Thomas Graf, José Luis Buendía, Anne-Lise Sibony, Pinar Akman, Nicholas Khan, Fernando Castillo de la Torre, Eric Gippini-Fournier, Pablo Ibañez Colomo and Alfonso Lamadrid de Pablo.

The event is organized by Chillin'Competition as well as by Fernando Castillo and Eric Gippini, members of the European Commission's Legal Service, and authors of the book "Evidence, Proof and Judicial Review in EU Competition Law" that we will also be presenting at the workshop.
