Banking Crisis litigation before the EU Courts

March 1, 2016 @ 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm

We are delighted to welcome Leo Flynn from the Commission Legal Service to give a talk to UKSALA on the subject of “Banking Crisis litigation before the EU Courts”. As someone who frequently defends the Commission’s State aid decisions in the General Court and CJEU, and who has been the Commission’s agent for all of the recent banking State aid cases that have gone to the EU Courts, Leo will be able to provide invaluable insights into the issues that are currently being debated and the judgments that we should be looking out for over the next years.

In particular he will address:

  • Who goes to court in banking cases? Standing and interest to act in the crisis case-law
  • What has been challenged in banking cases? Guidelines, decisions, commitments and conditions
  • The scrutiny of presence of aid by the EU Courts in banking cases
  • Review of compatibility under Article 107(3)(b) TFEU by the EU Courts, and
  • The interaction between preliminary rulings and annulment actions in relation to banking cases

Mayer Brown International are kindly hosting this event for UKSALA, and the seminar will be chaired by David Harrison, Partner and co-head of Mayer Brown’s European Antitrust and Competition Practice.

Arrive and sign in at 5.15 pm for a 5.30 pm start. The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.

As ever, the event is free, and please do register and bring along any colleagues who may be interested.
