State aid

Law Firm in the Netherlands specialised in State aid

Back to Antitrust, Competition & Trade

State aid is a constantly developing field of law. The EU and its Member States, among which the Netherlands and many other governments outside the EU have introduced far reaching public support schemes and guidelines in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ukraine crisis and its impact on the entire economy, and the Green Deal. In fact, the ambitious goals of the Green Deal (e.g., fit for 55) and the conversion of many sectors of the economy (e.g., fuel switch) will only be reached based on a broad swathe of public funding.

We advise both public authorities and companies on all aspects of the State aid rules. We help businesses to get the most out of state aid in their discussions with State authorities and represent their interests in all State aid proceedings at the EU Commission or before the Dutch courts.
