European Union

11KBW has established a leading profile in the field of EU law, building on our pre-eminence in the fields of public and administrative law, employment law and procurement law.

We advise and represent all parties, both in the public and private sectors, in both domestic proceedings and proceedings before the Court of Justice.

We regularly act in references to the Court of Justice of the European Union, as well as in the UK courts and tribunals when EU law issues arise – for instance in judicial review claims, tax and social security tribunals, employment tribunals and damages actions.

We have a detailed understanding of the case law and procedures of the Luxembourg Courts, as well as the domestic application of European law. Our members include former référendaires at the Court of Justice and authors of leading academic and practitioner works in the field.
