The new UK subsidy-control regime - consideration of domestic and international law rights and obligations

The UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement commits the UK and the EU to complying with certain subsidy control obligations. 

These are already binding under domestic law which means that any public funding that a business receives must comply with certain principles. If it doesn’t the subsidy is at risk of being challenged and may have to be repaid.

Join us for a webinar on the new subsidies control regime where our Head of Subsidies, Procurement, Trade Agreements and Trade Remedies, Dr Totis Kotsonis and Senior Associate, Brendan Ryan, will explain how the new system works and use case studies to illustrate key points.

Issues that our experts will discuss include:   

  • When do the new subsidy rules apply and what obligations do they create?
  • In what way do the new rules differ from the EU State Aid rules?
  • Are EU State Aid rules no longer relevant to businesses in the UK?
  • How do you limit risks if you are the recipient of a public subsidy?
  • What options do you have if you are concerned about subsidies that your competitors have received in the UK or the EU?  
Who should attend?
This webinar will be of interest to any business which sells goods or services in the UK and/or the EU.
