European economic law

European law is the supranational law in Europe. Since the Lisbon Treaty came into effect, the European Union law has been called the Union law. The law of the European Atomic Energy Community that is institutionally bound to the EU, but still legally independent, stands equally next to the Union law.


Primary European law includes the foundations of amendments for the general functioning of the European Union. Due to the functional similarity between primary law and national constitutions, the European Court of Justice speaks repeatedly of the so-called Charter of Fundamental Rights and Basic Freedoms.


Both partners of the VERNY & DAUSES law firm have been expert lawyers in European economic law for more than 25 years and have closely studied institutional law, negotiation law and European process law. At the European Court of Justice they have represented numerous national institutes and private organisations and have been involved in various fundamental legal opinions of key importance for deciding European law.
