European Law & European Economic Regulations

At present, European law regulates almost every aspect of the business/sector of the economy. The key to success is to understand and to become familiar with EU regulations.

Business needs a quick response, a straight path, and a guide, such as our team, to ensure that Clients actions comply with European regulations, but also to demonstrate how these regulations can be effectively used to create opportunities for business growth and to boost its competitiveness in the market or how to enforce one’s rights under European regulations.

Our Team has extensive experience in matters that require comprehensive and practical knowledge of procedures before the EU and national regulatory authorities as well as the Court of Justice of the European Union Court or the General Court. This experience gained in European institutions, among others, is very useful for Polish businesses in their relationships with the European Union authorities and allows us to professionally represent Clients before these authorities.
