In times of freedom of establishment, free movement of goods and recognition of further foreign forms of business organizations by European Union, businesses throughout the European territory are increasingly affected by European Union Law.
European Union law is no longer an abstract term, on the contrary it directly affects all areas of our life. Current competition law as well as termination rights in civil contracts actually derive for instance from Brussels’ legislation.
In every day life, the European Union Fundamental Rights Charter increases its importance and presence. Court of Justice of the European Union refers in its judgements increasingly to the Charter and the awareness of the national local courts of the catalogue of the fundamental rights becomes more intense and lead to questions addressed to the European Court of Justice for interpretation. Professor Meyer, one of the founders of our legal firm, represented the German Parliament within constitutional convention of the European Union and is now editor of the Nomos –Commentary on Fundamental Rights Charter.
