Statsstøtte

Vi er eksperter inden for:

  • Generel rådgivning om statsstøtteret, herunder vurdering af om støtte er statsstøtte og om den er lovlig
  • Anmeldelser til EU-Kommissionen
  • Etablering af samarbejde mellem offentlige og private virksomheder
  • Etablering, finansiering, drift, køb og salg af offentlige og halvoffentlige virksomheder
  • Handel med statsstøttede virksomheder
  • Klager over påstået ulovlig statsstøtte
  • Offentlige virksomheders etablering og drift af aktiviteter af privatretlig karakter.

Hvordan kan vi hjælpe?
Vi har nogen af Danmarks førende eksperter i statsstøtte, og vi rådgiver om alle aspekter inden for statsstøtteretten. Vi rådgiver en bred vifte af sektorer, herunder transport, medier, radio og tv, energi, landbrug og infrastruktur, lige som vi rådgiver inden for finansielle ydelser og skat.

Vores klienter er både offentlige myndigheder og modtagere af statsstøtte, som har behov for at sikre, at støtte ikke er i modstrid med lovgivningen. Vi repræsenterer også konkurrenter til støttemodtagere.

Vi fører jævnligt retssager om statsstøtte for vores klienter over for konkurrencemyndigheder og ved domstole i Danmark og i EU.

Udfordringer på området
Statsstøtte omfatter direkte tilskud og indirekte støtte fra en offentlig myndighed til en virksomhed eller en sektor. Formålet med statsstøttereglerne er at sikre, at konkurrencen blandt virksomheder i EU ikke forvrides.

I de senere år er fokus på statsstøttereglerne steget. Det skyldes i særdeleshed, at nationale myndigheder risikerer at blive mødt med krav om at kræve ulovlig statsstøtte betalt tilbage, og at konkurrenter til støttemodtagere nu kan anlægge erstatningssøgsmål ved de nationale domstole.
