The EU is at the origin of an ever-increasing amount of complex regulation. EU laws are constantly evolving and must be implemented and enforced by European and national administrations, often raising challenging legal questions.
Our EU law specialists have extensive experience across the full spectrum of EU regulatory rules, including those pertaining to public procurement, consumer goods, financial services, TMT and large-scale energy projects. We have unparalleled expertise in proceedings before the European Commission and EU courts, having led in numerous high-profile cases.
We guide clients in their engagement with regulators and legislators in relation to EU and domestic proposals, including drafting submissions in response to public consultation processes and regulatory assessments, as well as legislative interpretation and drafting. Our team also regularly advises both manufacturers and exporters on strategic issues pertaining to EU market access by increasing the competitiveness of their operations in, or exports to, the EU.
Our understanding of EU workings is significant, drawing on the experience of former European Commission officials and a former EU court judge. This allows us to effectively guide clients in their engagement with regulators and legislators in relation to EU and Member State proposed regulations.
