Garrigues has been providing EU law advisory services even before Spain joined the European Union. In 1985, Garrigues opened its Brussels office, since when it has provided advisory services and represented clients before bodies and courts in all manner of EU law-related matters, above all, antitrust, state aid, mergers, structural funds, internal market, public procurement, international trade and European tax law, to name but a few.
The Brussels office has made a name for itself in the legal market thanks to the wealth of experience it has amassed in EU law engagements. Its clients include financial institutions and companies from the energy, pharmaceutical distribution, sports, telecommunications, food, retail, movie production, and transportation industries. The Firm’s professionals regularly advise a number of Spanish public authorities at all levels on EU law issues.
