Regulatory & Administrative Law

Economic regulatory requirements locally and across Europe are clearly increasing. What isn't always so clear is exactly how they will affect your sector. With our knowledge of regulations throughout CEE/SEE, we can best advise you on the varying and complex regulatory frameworks that affect your business. But sometimes, just knowing the status quo is not enough; we strive to anticipate the compliance requirements of the future, sector by sector, so that you can react and plan accordingly.

You can rely on us for a variety of administrative law issues, including such diverse subject matters as EU law as well as constitutional law, environmental law, energy law, data protection, insurance supervisory, transport, gaming, decision-making requirements of public entities when entering into derivative trades or other financial transactions, or sanctions, to name just a few. Our expertise includes dealing with public and regulatory administrative authorities as well as courts on a local, national and international level. Apart from public law litigation, we can advise you in relation to public law issues (such as licensing and permitting) in various fields, ensuring your compliance not only with local or international law, but also with relevant industry standards.

Whatever your sector - energy and infrastructure, railroads, healthcare, medicinal products and medical devices, gaming, telecom or public transport – we have experience of advising clients in your industry; thereby acquiring understanding of the particularities and needs of exactly your field.

Areas of Specialisation

Environment, Planning and Zoning

Considering environmental issues at an early stage of transaction planning is essential to save time, money and nerves. The provisions of environmental law play an increasingly important role in corporate acquisitions, as well as in the planning and implementation of energy and infrastructure projects, project development and commercial and industrial plant permitting, and are crucial for their rapid and efficient implementation. A multitude of national and European laws and regulations makes it increasingly difficult to obtain a clear and comprehensive picture of the legal requirements. Through their years of experience in this field, our environmental law specialists are ideally equipped to filter out and handle the relevant questions for you. Learn more about our Environmental & Planning Law practice.
 

Licensing, Permits and Support Schemes

Overwhelmed by knowing which licence or permit you need? We can assist in obtaining the licences and permits required under general business rules or special rules relating to specific industries and in meeting specific notification requirements, such as in the energy sector (e.g. licensing of electricity and gas trading and environmental permits, as well as with respect to energy regulations), the granting of plant-related permits under environmental laws, and in the gaming industry (e.g. licensing, operation of poker rooms and online gambling).
Learn more about our Energy & Natural Resources practice.
 

Compliance

Knowing the ins and outs of all regulatory requirements under national and EU law isn't easy. We can help ensure that your business is compliant in all ways, and also help develop and implement compliance programmes to manage future risk.
 

International Trade and Sanctions Law

With the current shifting economic and political landscape, businesses increasingly face international trade restrictions, and failure to pay attention to this complex legal area can have serious consequences. For many years, we have been supporting clients in their international trade relations and cross-border M&A. Whether you are faced with trade regulations, export control or trade sanctions – with our experience and global connections, we can help you run your international business smoothly and avoid potential risks.
 

Energy and Utilities

You operate in the infrastructure, energy or utilities sector? We can support you with specialised advice on your specific sector requirements. You benefit from our experience in driving important energy projects throughout CEE/SEE for more than a decade, helping multinational corporations and project sponsors to conceptualize, develop and finance large-scale project developments that have continuously helped to improve the CEE/SEE region's strong competitive position within the global emerging market economies. Learn more about our Energy & Natural Resources practice.
 

Gambling

If you are in the gambling industry we can advise you across the CEE/SEE region on the legal frameworks that affect your daily work and long-term success. You don't only benefit from our general experience in the field; we also work hard to become equally knowledgeable about your individual business needs. We believe this is the key to providing practical advice that helps you meet your commercial objectives. You also benefit from our excellent contacts with public authorities which allow us to couple legal expertise with a ‘practical touch’, creating solutions that work for you in the real world.
 

Insurance Law

With direct experience in the insurance sector, you can rely on a team which is a market leader in the CEE/SEE region. You benefit from our strong relationships with regulatory bodies, local insurance business associations and market players across the region. Whether you are a national or international company, we can advise you on all types of insurance law, whereby our top priority is finding the strategy best suited to help you. Learn more about our Financial Institutions practice.


Life Sciences

If you are a business in the Life Science industry we can support on all legal aspects, from compliance with anti-corruption rules and industry guidelines, to medicinal products, medical devices, trade and data protection law as well on the implementation of clinical trial and research contracts. You benefit from our long experience in different legal areas relevant to the Life Science sector; meaning we understand the unique economic, regulatory, market and political climate in which you operate. Learn more about our Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals & Life Science practice.


TMT, Data Protection and Data Privacy

TMT-related advice is one of our strengths. In addition to regulatory advice in TMT-related matters, we advise you on general data protection issues and potential data security breaches. You can also rely on us for advice on the design and implementation of data applications, outsourcing of IT services, group-wide transfer of personal data, notification procedures of data applications and preparation and authorisation of data applications with the authorities.


Private Clients

We help local and international high-net worth individuals and their families throughout the CEE/SEE region on a wide variety of high-value matters; helping them to grow their business and wealth. We can also assist you with a wide variety of services, including advice regarding family-owned and closely held businesses and advice on immigration and citizenship matters following relocation.
