EU Cross Border Work


Many commercial concerns seem to under-estimate the impact of European law on their businesses. We can advise on how overriding European law impacts upon English businesses and how this affects UK businesses in such areas as: distribution and agency agreements, overseas employees, overseas trading contracts and 'locking-up' sales markets. The gradual removal of trade barriers across the European Union leads to businesses requiring advice on the significant opportunities which are now presented to business and commercial client base. We advise on the use of Competition regulations in the EU, as well as in the UK, in challenging anti-competitive conduct by business rivals. Other areas covered include: Franchises, Technology Transfer, (covering licensing of Patents and 'know-how'), Research and Development on joint R & D projects with foreign companies and Intellectual Property Rights.  

These aspects of EU Law relating to freedom and fairness of competition potentially affect every kind of business in the UK whether they trade with other EU countries or solely within the UK. Our Compliance Review also covers, wherever appropriate, areas such as intellectual property rights, employment issues, commercial contracts and any other aspects relevant to an individual business.

This kind of service, used positively by our clients, helps them to identify and seize the many opportunities opening increasingly in the EU. For example a business may find difficulty in breaking into a specific market because those within it are indulging in unlawful restrictive practices. Where this occurs this action can be taken to stop the practice and restore free competition. Additionally, and where appropriate, compensatory damages may be claimed. The same is equally applicable in terms of the internal, UK market under the 1998 UK Competition Act.

Every prudent business carries out market research and evaluation before attempting to break into a market. Acquiring knowledge of local laws, regulations and trading practices is an important element in order to obviate potential risk which is where our contacts in the Eurolegal network of corresponding business lawyers across the EU, plus the Baltic States, Finland, Norway, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Hong Kong, and India can be so useful.
