In addition to their extensive experience as legal advisors, they are also an important embodiment of culture and learning. We continue to grow in the areas of business law, M&A and employment law, in which Petronella and Martin’s new roles are an important part of our operational development.

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
