We are Stibbe European Law specialists

We have proven expertise in delivering pragmatic guidance and clear, workable solutions in all areas of European law.

European Law

By creating close working partnerships with our clients, we are able to guide them through the complexities of European law and create bespoke solutions to their particular situation.  

The broad spectrum of legal aspects we act upon include matters such as the free movement of goods, services and capital, competition law, customs law, secondary EU legislation, EU taxation, contract disputes, general EU principles and public tenders.

As part of our service, we assist clients with informal contacts with authorities as well as litigation before the national courts, the EU Commission and the General Court in various EU law areas.

Some of our actions lead to infringement procedures against Member States. In addition, we are regularly involved in preliminary questions to the Court of Justice on a variety of areas of EU law such as access to the EU courts, general principles of EU law, secondary legislation, unfair competition law and procurement law.

Moreover, we have provided legal services to the EU Commission and other EU institutions defending their interests in several procurement cases before the General Court and the Court of Justice.
