  • Free Movement of Goods, Services, People and Capital rules

  • Transport policy
  • External Policy

Who benefits from this type of service?

  • Individuals
  • Companies and not-for-profit organisations
  • Legal professionals
  • MEPs and/or their caseworkers
  • Lobbyists

What do we offer?

"First Aid" advice* - If you just require one off advice then we will provide you with a free half hour consultation, during which we will examine the question you have put forward, and do some preliminary research if required. If we can answer the question within that time, as is the case with many queries, then you will pay nothing.

If the answer to your query requires more time we will give you an estimate of the cost of finding the answer you require. If we consider it more appropriate we may instead refer you a law firm or other representative body who can take up your case.

Services to professionals

Companies, NGOs, law firms, MEPs, caseworkers, and lobbyists will often deal with a wide range of community law issues, a number of which are complex and require an in-depth knowledge of EU law. Different groups require different levels of support and for that reason we have put together a variety of packages to provide expert EU advice "on tap" to complement our "on demand" service, for example:

£960 a month; this gives you 8 hours of advice, research and guidance on EU law per month

£1999 a month gives you 24 hours of advice, research and guidance on EU law per month

£3000 a month. This is an ongoing service contract, where we provide advice, guidance and research on all aspects of EU law and EU affairs for up to 832 hours over the course of the year. Training services, if required, will be provided seperately.

Note: the above prices are ex-VAT.

A tailored package to suit NGOs or businesses providing an outsourced "virtual in-house" legal department can also be provided.

So if you are facing a particular issue and feel you need help, then either call us on 02380 617200 or send us an e-mail.

*Please note:

This service is a "First Aid" and research service only. European Law Monitor does not undertake representational work and therefore we are unable to represent you in courts and tribunals. The advice that we give is limited to general information on your rights and obligations in European Community law and its application to UK law based on the information you provide, and is not a substitute for the detailed specific advice and assistance of a lawyer acting for you.
