We share a passion for competition law dynamics in the developing world
Francisco is a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition. His current research focuses on competition law and economic development, machine learning and antitrust, and innovation policy in developing countries. Francisco did his PhD at the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich and holds an LL.M. from the University of California-Berkeley. Between 2009 and 2014, worked in the competition authority of El Salvador. If antitrust law does not work for Francisco, his plan B is to open a Salvadoran food restaurant in Munich. The delicious “pupusas” have already tested well with some focus groups.
Amine is an associate in Latham & Watkins’ Paris office and a member of the Antitrust & Competition Practice. His practice focuses on EU and French competition and regulatory law. Amine has a Ph.D. from the Universty of Montpellier I (France) and an LL.M. from the College of Europe.
If not working on competition related matters, Amine can be easily found in a gym. His biggest challenge for the coming months is, besides surpassing Francisco’s 100Kg performance in the bench-press, to learn how to pronounce words like Missbrauchsaufsicht (abuse of control) and Wirtschaftsbereiche (economic sectors).
