39 Essex Chambers offers leading and junior barristers with noted expertise across the full spectrum of EU law, in domestic legal settings and internationally. Expertise lies in both commercial and public sectors – including public procurement, state aid, competition law, VAT, financial services, freedom of establishment, sanctions, energy, telecommunications, environmental law, EU trade and investment law (including in arbitration proceedings), as well as all areas of EU social policy (citizenship, immigration and asylum, European Charter of Fundamental Rights) and EU constitutional law. Our established international footing makes 39 Essex Chambers ideally placed to navigate the evolving dynamics between domestic, EU and international law.
Drawing on sector specific knowledge across all areas of commercial and public law as well as in international arbitration, our barristers advise on and litigate EU law issues for corporates and multinationals, UK regulators (including the OFT, CMA), domestic public sector bodies – including central and local government, EU institutions (including the European Commission, the European Court of Auditors), Member States’ governments, NGOs, charities, and individuals, including high net worth individuals.
Our barristers appear before domestic, European and international courts and specialist tribunals (including the Competition Appeal Tribunal, the VAT Tribunal) as well as the domestic courts of other EU and non-EU states – where EU law issues arise. Our expertise includes addressing EU law points as they arise before international arbitral bodies.
