Goals / Remit

Alber & Geiger is a top ranked EU government relations law firm. On top, we offer communication services to complement our legal lobbying. Also, we force political solutions backed by our unparalleled litigation capacities.

Issues

On behalf of the Gauselmann Group and Merkur Casinos, we are following all policies, directly and indirectly, linked to remote and land-based gaming in Europe. Alber & Geiger is representing Nuseed before the EU institutions and Member States in the review of the Annex IX A of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED2) on advanced biofuels and the timely and efficient implementation and interpretation of RED2 in key Member States. We are assisting Chemours in upholding the phase down of hydrofluorocarbons as foreseen in the F-Gas Regulation. At the same time, we are promoting Opteon, a Chemours brand by emphasising its contribution to the EU's climate change goals. A multifaceted campaign aimed at the EP, Commission and the PermReps ta raise awareness and effectively address illegal trade. On behalf of Chemours, we are working with EU and national regulators to ensure, health, environmental and safety compliance as well as a variety of other issues, including permitting. In this framework, we are working on REACH and CLP regulations, as well as the broader PFAS discussions in Europe, with the Commission, EP, PermReps and ECHA, making the case for the exclusion of the Chemours brands from a potential ban, while highlighting their essentiality and societal benefits. We also represent Chemours' Titanium Dioxide business, advocating against the Commission's proposal to classify Titanium Dioxide as carcinogen by inhalation. While engaging at the technical and regulatory levels, we have broadened the issue to the political players, in the PermReps and the EP, to find a suitable compromise that takes into account consumer choice, jobs and competitiveness. We are helping ContourGlobal respond quickly and effectively to a potential State aid proceeding to keep their coal power plant in Bulgaria on track. In this context, we are relying on State aid law to reach a settlement that solves the past through a future oriented agreement, which will enjoy the support of the EU institutions. Our advocacy is comprehensive focusing on the energy security aspect, in line with the European Energy Security Strategy, environmental standards and compliance, as well as internal market considerations. Similarly, we are assisting Terna, the construction and operating company, to ensure that all inherent challenges to deliver an important European infrastructure project such as the E65 are successfully overcome. For Huawei, we focus on EU telecoms policy, including the EU Digital Agenda Industrial policies relevant to the telecoms industry. In addition, we have followed files related to research, development and innovation as well as privacy, security and data protection. In relation to Altus, we are working on effective national justice system in Poland, the rule of law, human rights as well as upholding a business friendly environment and better regulatory predictability, particularly in relation to investment funds. We are representing and advocating on behalf of the Government of Panama to shape the new EU methodology to identify high-risk third countries. In addition, we are communicating Panama's advancements in addressing the deficiencies in its AML/FTC regimes, and building support for Panama's eventual de-listing. With focus mainly in the European Commission, which is in charge of the process, we have also addressed the European Parliament and the Permanent Representations of the Member States. Our lobbying has so far ensured that there will be no additional benchmarks and that the EU's process for de-listing will mirror international procedures. As far as Allied Meridian Industrial & Financial Holdings N.V., we are following the EU-Moldova relations, in particular the respective Association Agreement, insisting on the implementation of the principles of separation of powers, independence of the judiciary, good governance and the rule of law in the dispute over the Port of Giurgiulesti.
