Lawyer european law
The area of European law is not to be underestimated since it has now become an integral part of business life. It takes precedence over national law and can be enforced in European Union jurisdictions in exactly the same way as national law.
It can therefore provide a powerful leverage for businesses, as national laws can be rendered completely unenforceable if they conflict with the relevant European law.
The Firm advises its clients in the following matters of European law :
- Unfair competition law
- Free circulation of goods: restrictions, fiscal and non-fiscal discriminatory practices, technical standards
- Free movement of people: employees, self-employed professionals and companies
- Enforcing "derived" European Union law (EU regulations and directives, European Commission rulings)
- Pre-litigation and litigation assistance in national jurisdictions (enforcement of European Union law, issues prejudicial to the European Union jurisdiction) and the European institutions (European Commission, European Court of First Instance, European Court of Justice, European Court of Human Rights)
