European Union Law

EU law forms the basis for a significant amount of domestic legislation in a wide variety of areas. EU Directives, in particular, have been the source of extensive legislation at national level.

EU Regulations, which have direct and immediate effect in each Member State’s legal system, are equally important.

In addition to competition, customs and international trade matters, EU-GEN-IUS professionals provide counsel to public and private clients in any other area of EU law directly or indirectly applicable at domestic level.
