EU Law

Our various practices have a wealth of experience representing clients before EU administrative bodies and courts. Our experts feel comfortable in mixed language contexts, and therefore can function as powerful intermediaries between clients and EU institutions. Notable assignments include merger control before the European Commission, state aid litigation before the EU General Court, and numerous Grand Chamber cases before the EU Court of Justice and trademark opposition proceedings before EUIPO.
