Professors, lawyers and experts in the field attended the roundtable. Professor Farhad Ameli (Vice Dean of La Sorbonne Law School), Mrs Jennifer El-Baz (Deputy to the Head of Office for Foreign Direct Investments in France, Direction Générale du Trésor), Professor Ioannis Kokkoris (Chair in Competition Law and Economics at the CCLS) and Mrs Ingrid Rogers (solicitor, member of the Competition Department of leading UK law firm Travers Smith). The discussion was moderated by Jeantet corporate partner Stephen Walters.
