The Advocate General of the Court of Justice asked: How could even a wine grower of truly Herculean qualities, who spends his evenings reading the relevant EU legislation, case law and any other relevant documents, know that such approval is inherent in the system and logic of these programs, if it is not written down anywhere? We will help not only a wine grower, but also others unravel the legal complexities related to projects involving public funding – and you won’t need the labours of Hercules to do it. - Krzysztof Brysiewicz.
Businesses using public funding often face various problems with implementing their projects. More often than not, these are problems they are trying to deal with on their own, such as extending projects, changes to those projects, procurement or achieving specific indicators. Seemingly, there is no room for lawyers in ordinary business dealings, but, in fact, projects involving public funding can be very difficult and trigger negative consequences for the business spanning many years. Problems with obtaining a subsidy, difficulties related to accounting for it, contract termination, financial adjustments, incentive effects, enforcement, lawsuits, project changes, procurement – this is where we, special task force, step in.
