The European Union has its own legal framework, which is independent of international law. The EU law has a direct or indirect effect on the laws of all its member states and becomes part of the legal system of each member state. The European Union in itself is a legal authority.
The legal order is generally divided into primary legislation (the Treaties and general legal principles), secondary legislation (based on the Treaties) and supplementary law.
The European Parliament, together with the Council, exercises legislative functions, through the so-called “ordinary legislative procedure”. The Parliament seeks to simplify the legislative process, improve the quality of the drafting of legal texts and ensure that appropriate sanctions are imposed on Member States that do not comply with Union legislation.
The Commission’s Annual Legislative and Work Program presents the main political priorities and identifies concrete actions, legislative or non-legislative, which translate these priorities into operational terms. Parliament plays a genuine role in the creation of new laws, as it examines the Commission’s Annual Work Program and can express which laws it would like to see introduced.
Lobbying is a necessary activity. It is logical and correct that the groups affected by legislation can and should have, through the channels established for this purpose, the opportunity to express their point of view to the legislator, who cannot live apart from the society for which he/she legislates. The interaction and communication of our clients’ arguments during the decision-making process is what we define as Lobby and Representation.
