Integrated approach

Today the automotive industry is impacted by even more areas of law than ever before. You deal with a broad range of questions, such as ‘What should I do to be data protection compliant when exchanging data with dealers, suppliers or customers?’ ‘How do I restructure my dealer network taking into account consumer’s changing demand?’ and ‘What are the conditions to import vehicles / parts into the EU?’ These are all questions which require an integrated approach.

Our team is composed of attorneys-at-law who have an extensive experience in automotive matters combined with an in-depth understanding of the local legal culture and the way EU law is applied.
