On January 30th, 2020 the Administrative District Court of Latvia in case No. A420138218, the claimant being represented by ECOVIS CONVENTS, made the decision to request a preliminary ruling to the Court of Justice of the European Union. The question posed in the case concerns the interpretation of the term “service facility” in the Latvian Railway Law, which was transposed into the Latvian law from a directive of the European Union, which establishes a single European railway area.
Moreover, ECOVIS CONVENTS represents its client in the case C-206/19of the Court of Justice of the European Union, wherein a judgement is soon to be expected concerning the conformity of national regulations with fundamental freedoms of the European Union – specifically, the right of establishment, as well as freedom of movement of capital, which were restricted by providing restrictions to the purchase of farm land in Latvia by foreigners.
In addition we draw attention that a judgement is soon to be expected in the case C-743/18 of the Court of Justice of the European Union regarding the repayments of funds from the European Regional development fund, where in the end of 2019, ECOVIS CONVENTS successfully represented its client in oral proceedings before the Court of Justice of the European Union.
Thus, attorneys and lawyers of ECOVIS CONVENTS have attested their theoretical knowledge of the European Union law, by applying it in practice, and by gaining invaluable practical experience in oral proceedings before the Court of Justice of the European Union.
