State Aid lawyers

State aid law plays a crucial role in the functioning of markets, ensuring a level playing field. Its importance has been brought into sharp relief in the latest global financial crisis.

State aid is always an issue in privatisations, which remain on government agendas. Government involvement or funding in major projects raises state aid issues for private sector bidders as well as for government.

At CMS, we can help you successfully manage any engagement with the state in a transactional capacity. Our sector-focused team of lawyers has many years of experience in advising government and the private sector in the UK on state aid issues, and we regularly advise on privatisations in expanding economies.
