About the chair
Professor Renato Nazzini joined King's College London as Professor of Law in 2012. Previously, he was Professor of Competition Law and Arbitration at the University of Southampton, which he joined from the Office of Fair Trading, then the UK competition authority (now the Competition and Markets Authority), where he was Deputy Director of the Legal and Policy Department and led or advised on major areas of enforcement and policy. His work included the review of the policy on abuse of dominance under Article 102 TFEU, which led to the adoption of the Commission Guidance Paper on Article 102 TFEU, and on the formulation of the policy on actions for damages for competition infringements, which led to major reforms in the UK and in the EU. Professor Nazzini is currently a non-governmental adviser to the International Competition Network (ICN), where he has been particularly active on the Unilateral Conduct Working Group and on the Merger Working Group.
