EU Law


Our European Union law team brings together specialist advisory and advocacy skills from an exceptionally wide range of different areas of law, all of which are influenced by EU legislation and jurisprudence. We have advised and represented clients in very large numbers of proceedings that involve EU law in the UK Courts and Tribunals, in particular the Administrative Court, the Employment, Immigration and Competition Appeal Tribunals, and at all appellate levels in the UK; and in the General Court and Court of Justice of the EU; and in a range of other international fora where issues of EU law arise. Our members have also provided expert evidence on issues of EU law in non-EU litigation.

EU law is of fundamental importance to several of our practice areas, including:

Other specialist areas include the free movement of goods and services, international sanctions regimes, telecoms law, public procurement, anti-dumping regulation, utility and pharmaceuticals regulation.

Academic expertise

Our practice is informed by several leading academics in EU law fields, including Professor Takis Tridimas, author of a leading text on the general principles of EU Law, who is currently advising various parties on problems arising from the Greek financial crisis and Professor Philippe Sands QC, an expert in environmental law and public international law.

For legal analysis and updates on European law, you can visit our dedicated blog, EUtopia, created by Aidan O’Neill QC (author of EU Law for UK Lawyers) and Christopher Brown (editor of the UK Competition Law Journal).
