Summary

Dr Albert Sanchez Graells is a Reader in Economic Law at the University of Bristol Law School, a Member of the European Commission Stakeholder Expert Group on Public Procurement (2015-18), a Member of the European Procurement Law Group, and a Member of the Procurement Lawyers Association Brexit Working Group.

Albert is a specialist in European economic law, with a main focus on competition law and public procurement. He is also interested in general issues of sector regulation and, more broadly, in the rules supporting the development and expansion of the European Union's internal market. He takes a law and economics approach to his research and is particularly keen on the analysis of the systems of incentives and enforcement mechanisms that law creates or facilitates.

His research interests are in law and economics, especially regarding competition and public procurement law, on which he completed his PhD (Eur) and published Public Procurement and the EU Competition Rules, 2nd edn (Bloomsbury-Hart, 2015). He has recently edited Smart Public Procurement and Labour Standards. Pushing the Discussion after RegioPost (Hart, 2018, forthcoming), and also coedited Reformation or Deformation of the Public Procurement Rules (Edward Elgar, 2016), with Prof GS Ølykke (Copenhagen Business School). Most of Albert's working papers are available at http://ssrn.com/author=542893 and his analysis of current legal developments is published in his blog http://www.howtocrackanut.com.

He is a regular speaker at international conferences and has been recently invited by the European Court of Auditors and European Commission as an academic expert in public procurement and competition matters. He has also advised the World Bank and other international institutions regarding public procurement reform.

Prior to joining academia, Albert was a practising lawyer advising multinational corporations on competition and public procurement matters. Albert has conducted research at the Library of Congress (Washington), the Centre for Competition Law and Policy of the University of Oxford, and the Law Department of the Copenhagen Business School. He has also held research fellowships at the Collegio Carlo Alberto of the University of Turin and the Faculty of Law of University Carlos III in Madrid.

Albert welcomes applications for PhD supervision in the areas of law and economics, EU law and policy, competition law, public procurement and economic law more generally.
