“Serbian Menarini” – Chillin’Competition Weighs in on Serbia Development

The preeminent competition blog in Europe, Chillin’Competition put out a piece on the most recent developments in Serbia and the Balkans together with an exclusive publication of our constitutional challenge in English (available for download). This is one of the rare if not the only time for this region to come under the spotlight of this esteemed competition blog.

Created in 2009, Chillin’Competition, under its mantra “Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron” developed a cult following among competition practitioners, economists and aspiring law graduates across Europe and beyond thanks to its peculiar brand of legal humor, in-depth analysis and up-to-date following on the most important developments in competition law.  Its interviewees and conference speakers include the likes of the European Commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager [link], the Hearing Officer for competition proceedings Wouter Wils [link], judge Marc van der Woude [link], judge Ian Forrester QC [link], Harvard Law Professor Einer Elhauge, former Chairman of the Antitrust Advisory Committee to the Obama Campaign [link] and many others – essentially, the Who is Who of European and global antitrust law.

Needless to say that both our partners, the Association for Protection of Constitutionality and Legality (UZUZ) and the Lawyer’s Committee for Human Rights (YUCOM), as well as the other applicants of the initiative, namely the national Bar Association, and us are honored that Chillin’Competition recognized the potentially far-reaching importance of the story, its international/ECHR angle and decided to give this development the chillin’ treatment.

As to date, we will continue to timely & transparently inform the general public on developments as this case moves into its next phases.
