In order to enhance the quality of activities of Konkurencijos taryba, the authority has established a committee of academic advisers. Such right to form an advisory committee is established by the Law on Competition of the Republic of Lithuania.
Pro bono experts can be approached by Konkurencijos taryba for external advice and recommendations on matters falling within the competence of the Lithuanian competition authority, including competition law investigations. Advice and insights by advisers are valuable in analysing complex cases.
Most recent member of the committee Alminas Žaldokas, Associate Professor of Finance at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, joined the team in 2020. The committee also consists of the following members: Asta Sendonaris, economist and business strategy consultant, currently working at the Baltic–American Freedom Foundation, Ioannis Kokkoris, Professor of Competition Law and Economics at Queen Mary University of London, Matthew Bennett, Vice President of the global consulting firm Charles River Associates and Philip Marsden, Professor of Law and Economics at the College of Europe, Bruge.
