European rules and regulations today play a major role in nearly every area of German law. That is why we also offer our clients advice on European issues, on negotiations with the European Commission and in proceedings before the European Court of Justice.

Our specialists in European law have had contact with the decision-makers in the European Commission, the European Parliament as well as other institutions on a European level over many years. Prof. Dr. Friedrich Graf von Westphalen has been Head of the "European Contract Law" Committee since 2006 and Head of the German delegation to the CCBE, the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe, since 2010.

Apart from European contract law, our services in European law focus on European competition law, particularly in connection with distribution agreements, EU state aid, merger control, representing clients in proceedings for fines imposed under competition law, anti-dumping, legal lobbying, European product safety law, the law of the WTO, proceedings before the European Commission and proceedings before the European Court of Justice. In so doing, we cooperate closely with specialists from the EU law firm Kemmler Rapp Böhlke & Crosby, which has focused solely on European law for many years on the spot in Brussels.

Your contacts for European law and, at the same time, the representatives of the Brussels office are:

Bachmann, Werner (Freiburg, Brussels)
Bödeker, Annette Dr. LL.M. (Frankfurt, Brussels)
Köhnen, Sven (Cologne, Brussels)
Laschet, Carsten (Cologne, Brussels)
Thies, Hendrik Dr. (Freiburg, Brussels)
