State aid regulations mark out boundaries for state and municipal support for businesses. These rules aim to prevent the misuse of public funds and the distortion of competition. Illegal state aid must be repaid; therefore, businesses that receive support and public authorities must recognise state aid and ensure its compatibility with the EU internal market.
Our team of experienced experts successfully guides clients through the various stages of state aid control procedures, starting with the planning of a potential state aid measure or programme or applying for state aid, and ending with the representation of clients in formal and informal investigations by the European Commission as well as in private enforcement state aid cases before national courts.
