Biography

Dr. Georg M. Berrisch, a German Rechtsanwalt, is recognized as one of the most experienced and effective litigators before the Court of Justice and the General Court of the EU. He is known for vigorously defending the interests and rights of his clients and for developing effective legal and political strategies in complex contentious proceedings before the European Commission and other EU institutions, in areas such as competition, state aid and trade.

In competition matters, Dr. Berrisch has represented clients before the EU Commission and national competition authorities in merger control proceedings as well as cartel and abuse of dominance investigations.

Dr. Berrisch has litigated nearly 200 cases over the past several years before the Court of Justice and the General Court of the EU. His litigation experience before the two EU Courts covers a broad range of subject matters including:

* competition (cartels, merger control, abuse of dominant position)
* state aid
* international trade (anti-dumping and anti-subsidy, customs, trade sanctions, agricultural levies)
* pharmaceuticals
* consumer protection and passenger rights
* access to documents under the EU Transparency regulation
* EU constitutional law as well as fundamental rights law

Dr. Berrisch regularly meets with judges from both EU Courts outside of specific cases to discuss various issues concerning the operation of the Courts in his capacity of the two leading German lawyers associations (Deutsche Anwaltverein and Bundesrechtsanwaltskammer) in the Permanent Delegation of the CCBE (the official representation of the bars and law societies in the EU Member States) to the EU Courts.

Dr. Berrisch is highly regarded by clients for his practical advice on external trade, including export control of Dual Use Goods and the operation of the EU’s economic sanctions against Iran, Syria and other countries and assistance on issues arising in the World Trade Organization. He has also represented clients in EU anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations.
