Grant law

The receipt of government grants is linked to the adoption of a sometimes strict regulatory corset. This raises a number of questions both in the run-up to and during the implementation and follow-up of the funding. The aim of our advice is in particular to identify the legal basis and structuring options for funding and to avoid any reclaims by the funding provider, whether due to ineligible expenditure or errors in the awarding of contracts.

We are regularly active in the following areas:

  • Drafting of grant notifications and grant agreements
  • Preparation and review of so-called forwarding agreements, which can be used to pass on funding to secondary recipients
  • Defense against reclaims by funding bodies, e.g. in objection and legal proceedings
