I am a specialist for pubic procurements, EU subsidies and other non-refundable financial means provided from public budgets. In this context, I focus mainly on the legal protection means against the subsidy reduction by its provider.
I have participated in many successful public-law audits, arbitrations according to the Administrative Procedure Code and tax proceedings conducted due to any alleged violation of budget discipline, including the representation of clients at the Appellate Financial Directorate and a set of courts within the administrative judicature.
Thanks to my specialization, I have an excellent overview of the current as well as historic decision-making practice of the Office for the Protection of Competition and judicature of administration courts and European Court of Justice, concerning the public procurements and violation of budget discipline. I provide regular trainings concerning the above-mentioned issue.
