European Union Law

We advise clients on complying with the complex requirements arising from the EU law, planning the conduct of their business, and defending their rights. Our services include assistance on matters relating to intellectual property, data protection, taxation, public procurement, and competition.
Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of the requirements imposed at the EU level as well as of their implementation in domestic law. We help clients to ascertain the exact requirements applicable to their business activities and to determine whether they are legitimate. If necessary, we protect the interests in court.
We also help clients to communicate with EU institutions and to achieve the best possible results.
