Biography

Professor 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.

Research interests

Professor Nazzini’s research interests are in the areas of competition law, commercial arbitration and ADR. Professor Nazzini’s work on competition law has focussed extensively on enforcement, remedies and procedure. His work also focuses on procedural rights, both within the European Union and from a broader comparative constitutional law perspective. He has also written on abuse of dominance and the fundamental question of how legal rules develop in connection with, and relate to, the objectives of competition law and the influence of economics on policy development and enforcement priorities. As regards commercial arbitration and ADR, Professor Nazzini has been one of the first authors to explore the relationship between competition law and arbitration. His research currently focuses on how general doctrines such as res judicata and issue estoppel apply in international arbitration and how the principle of finality is or may be limited because of the multi-jurisdictional dimension of international arbitration.
