We can assist you with all areas of EU State aid rules. Our team includes specialists who have been involved in the State aid aspects of some of the biggest and most complex projects in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. Our clients include public sector bodies, sponsors, aid recipients, lenders and third party complainants.
We help clients to achieve their objectives whilst ensuring that they comply fully with the State aid rules. We provide strategic advice on the ways in which to structure transactions in order to achieve this. We have detailed knowledge of the labyrinthine rules, EU and national guidance, case law and authorised schemes that characterise this sector.
Our excellent relations with officials in the European Commission in Brussels and national government authorities enable us to guide our clients through the notification and clearance process where necessary.
We are also able to assist clients who wish to prevent competitors from receiving unlawful State aid, including making formal complaints and bringing court action.
