The policy and political stakes of the EU State Aid investigations into tax rulings and advance pricing agreements continue to rise. Senior government officials in the United States are increasingly raising serious concerns about the investigations and some US policy makers are pushing for retaliatory action. However, the common perceptions about the circumstances around these investigations differ dramatically depending on which side of the Atlantic the commentator resides.

Mayer Brown tax and competition lawyers, with insight into how the EU Commission operates, will provide an overview of the rationale behind the EU Commission actions and the legal analysis and framework used by the Commission in these investigations. They also will provide insights into the reactions of the EU national governments and offer advice for US companies on how they should view and prepare for this new tax environment.

CLE credit is pending in CA, NY and IL. Mayer Brown will apply for CLE credit in NC, TX and VA upon request.
