As one of the UK’s leading firms advising the public sector, many of Sharpe Pritchard’s clients are affected by the EU rules restricting the provision of financial and other assistance to organisations in a way that would distort fair competition. As such, we have accumulated a wealth of experience in advising on matters relating to state aid and when it can be validly given.
Our recognised team of experts, many of whom lecture on the subject, are able to break down the complexities of legislation governing state aid to give pragmatic, solution-focused advice, covering a range of areas from the use of the general and SGEI de minimis exemptions and the General Block Exemption Regulations (GBER).
We are able to use our years of experience of advising aid providers and recipients to propose suitably tailored routes to state aid compliance for clients with particular desired outcomes.
