State aid

Our team is also able to draw upon lengthy experience in the field of State aid and services of general economic interest both in the administrative phase and in the litigation phase. We advise public entities involved in the granting of aid, companies that are potential beneficiaries of the same and entities affected by the attribution of aid that restricts competition, both before the national authorities and before the European authorities and the European courts.

We have also accompanied the processes of liberalisation of several principal public services in Portugal, in particular regarding the articulation of the rules relating to their exploitation and management, as services of general economic interest, with European Competition law.
