EU Regulatory & Disputes Resolution

We understand Brussels

Providing legal advice for businesses for those active in the European market is hardly conceivable without understanding the underlying EU law. In particular, when it comes to cartel issues, State aid aspects and trade law matters, the EU Commission may sanction companies´ interests in a serious manner.
