Lunch Talk Series

Lunch Talks

The GCLC organizes monthly lunch talks in Brussels on current topics of competition law and economics. Those lunch talks are intended to provide a discussion platform for private practitioners and competition officials. With over 50 lunch talks to date, and on average 100 registered participants, the GCLC lunch talks have been praised by the competition community for providing networking and socializing opportunities in a club environment.
