    Goals / Remit

    P&A's attorneys and experts combine technical/legal expertise with an acute understanding of the complex political context in which Community Law is formulated, applied, and interpreted. Hence, P&A offers EU and other international companies an insight into European Union related affairs with the view to anticipating problems, capitalising on opportunities in a proactive manner and effectively tackling them before the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council, otherwise before the European Ombudsman or ultimately the General Court and the Court of Justice of the European Union.

    Other financial info

    No purely lobbying activity is carried out by P&A, the main activity and focus being legal advice and litigation. Not strictly speaking legal action (i.e. advocacy) is very limited and taken only in support and in relation to the relevant legal activity (complaints or legal advice). Hence, it is very difficult to define a budget allocated to policy activities that accompany the legal action.

  • EU Structures

    Groups (European Commission)


    Groups (European Parliament)


    Communication activities

    Articles and interviews in the national and EU media or in policy and law reviews on current policies or case law of the Court of Justice of the EU

    Other activities

    The firm’s main areas of focus concentrate on competition law (antitrust, merger and acquisitions, state aids), public procurement, chemicals, cosmetics and medical products, air and water pollution, Natura, waste, animal welfare, consumer protection, feed additives, food law, health claims, labeling, plant protection products, authorisations and data sharing, audiovisual policy, advertising rights, digital safety, internet privacy, legal review of audits and OLAF cases, public v. private broadcasting, sport policy, EU and WTO, liberalization of energy markets (electricity), renewable sources, maritime transport (classification societies), aviation, road safety and emissions, taxation and excise duties, financial services and banking sector. Pappas & Associates also advises staff of the European Institutions and defends them before the European Union Civil Service Tribunal.
