Public law litigation

Infringement actions.

Given the pervasiveness of the state actions in our lives, it is almost inevitable that private-public interactions may result in disputes.

The principle of state liability under EU law, the Francovich principle, emerged from the European Court of Justice landmark case of Francovich v Italy [1991]. The Court in the case held that individuals, who suffer loss or injury attributable to Member States' breach of EU law may seek monetary compensation or damages before national authorities. In the case of Courage Ltd v Crehan [2001], the principle of state liability is also applicable in disputes between two private actors.
