In today's global marketplace, an understanding of international trade, foreign laws and regulations, and international standards is a must. Our clients conducting business in the European Union (EU) have been assisted by our Brussels Team of attorneys, scientists, legal and regulatory affairs experts since as early as May 1992. Our Brussels colleagues are actively involved in issues relating to the integration of the regulatory regimes of the EU. Our Brussels Team enjoys a close working relationship with the EU institutions, through daily contacts with officials in the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council, and specialized agencies. Moreover, given that the harmonization of the laws of the Member States remains incomplete in many areas, our Team also advises our clients on the applicability of national legislation to their products and materials and, to that end, have developed extensive contacts with the national authorities. Last but not least, for more than 10 years prior to their accession to the EU, our Brussels Team had been in regular contact with eastern and central European authorities to advise them on harmonizing their legislation with that of the EU, and are therefore uniquely positioned to help our clients identify and address legal and regulatory challenges and opportunities resulting from the enlargement of the EU to its current 27 Member States.
Our multicultural and multilingual team in Brussels has also developed an extensive practical day-to-day experience in employing the principle of free movement of goods (mutual recognition), as embedded in Articles 28 and 30 of the Treaty of Rome, to assist clients in securing lawful marketing of safe products throughout the EU that they could not otherwise place in certain national markets.
