Trade and Industry, Investment and Promotion of Economic Development


The availability of state aid plays a significant role in the development of new industrial locations, and European law on state aid continues to gain in importance here. Our lawyers analyse the regional, national and European subsidies available to investors, provide assistance with the application procedures and conduct follow-up negotiations with the responsible agencies if revisions are found to be necessary once the investment has been effected. Since government actions became subject to judicial review upon entry into force of the German Basic Law, the legal profession has also concentrated on preventing public-sector bodies from intervening unlawfully in protected legal positions.
In some cases, there may be no basis in law or in fact for preventive action. In these cases, our lawyers provide advice on ways to hold the state liable and claim damages or compensation. This includes conducting the necessary lawsuits if a settlement cannot be negotiated.
