I’m pleased to announce that my talented friend and colleague Anthony Rose, a British solicitor with whom I have worked for some 15 years, has agreed to begin contributing occasional guest articles to this blog – the first of which will follow this post. As background, I can tell you that Anthony is married with four children and lives in Gloucestershire, England. His professional life has been spent in corporate and commercial law, with particular emphasis on insurance and reinsurance, competition law and franchising. He has spoken before the European Commission on a number of competition law investigations, including zip fasteners, fire armour, predatory pricing (the leading case of ECS v AKZO) and cinema and TV lighting. He is the author of a number of papers on competition law and on his hobby, military history. He holds a hot air balloon pilot’s licence and plays tennis enthusiastically but badly.
