Industry associations and public affairs
Industry associations often have to deal with complex legal issues. The successful representation of their interests in Brussels and Berlin requires specific knowhow of legal arguments and the essential compliance rules, in particular when dealing with public officials. Furthermore, associations are in need of precisely worded statutes and have to apply them in everyday life. After all, they have to comply with competition law, e.g. during meetings, in their statistical work as well as when they provide templates and recommendations to their members.
