EUROPEAN UNION

Often European Institutions, in the context of their regulatory activity, require data, reports and legal experience on various areas of European law and, especially, from the Member States. In this regard, our firm has been able to place the experience of its lawyers at the service of the Union's policies. In the area of advisory agreements, and after having been selected at the end of the relevant bidding contest, our firm has advised the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Central Bank in areas such as Energy and Transportation Law, Antitrust/Competition Law, and Banking and Financial Law.

We also represent various institutions and bodies of the Union, such as the European Commission, the European Economic and Social Committee and the European Committee of Regions, both before national Courts as well as before the jurisdictions of the Union, in order to defend their interests. This intervention takes place both in matters concerning European civil servants as well as vis-à-vis third parties. We have represented several institutions and bodies in litigation relating to the enforcement of contracts executed with beneficiaries of assistance and subsidy programs before the Spanish Courts, and in litigation with service providers, before the Belgian jurisdictions.
