Event description:

A half day, practical training session that will help you better understand and navigate the EU and all its complexities.

The training course will focus on:

  • The functioning of the three primary EU institutions: the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council of the EU.
  • How the institutions take decisions and how the legislative processes work both in theory and in practice.
  • The key stakeholders and persons of influence within the institutions. 
  • Practical tips and guidance for interacting with the institutions.

The experience of our trainers:

Jordan, Alexander and Lorna’s experience covers both EU and UK law from a broad range of sectors. 

Their familiarity with the institutions of the EU stems from their varied work on mergers, antitrust, litigation, state aid and other EU law.

A few highlights include advising:
  • Royal Dutch Shell on its acquisition of BG Group - the largest acquisition in the oil and gas industry for a decade;
  • Ball Corporation on the European competition aspects of its acquisition of Rexam plc; and
  • British Airways on its appeals to the General Court and the Court of Justice against the European Commission’s decision regarding alleged cartel activity in the airfreight sector.
