Dear friends,

Antitrustitalia’s 52 lunch talk is scheduled on Thursday, 11 July 2019, 12:30 pm at the European Commission’s Directorate General for Competition (DG COMP)’s Auditorium in Brussels (Place Madou 1 │ 1210 Saint-Josse-ten-Nood │ Metro Madou).

Daniele Calisti, Deputy Head of Unit E.4 (mergers) in DG COMP of the European Commission, will give a presentation in English on:

‘The Tata/ Thyssenkrupp prohibition and merger enforcement in basic industries’

The very recent prohibition of the Tata Steel / Thyssenkrupp JV was the last of a number of cases in European basic industries where the Commission intervened. These mergers raised diverse issues, such as share computation, value chain integration, imports and trade measures, as well as how to design a workable structural remedy. Daniele will discuss the recent prohibition and lessons learnt from those other recent merger cases.

Daniele Calisti is Deputy Head of DG Competition’s Unit responsible for mergers in basic industries, manufacturing and agriculture, where he lead investigations into several prominent recent cases. He previously worked on the drafting and negotiation of the 2014 antitrust damages directive. He holds an LLM from King’s college London and a PhD in Public Law and Economics from La Sapienza University of Rome.

Lunch will be provided at 12:30, the presentation will begin at 13:00 and will close at 14:30. Important note: Please allow time to register at the Madou Tower desk, we recommend coming at noon.
