Dr. Jens Steger, an antitrust lawyer in our Frankfurt office, authors “Tightened Legal Framework for Research and Development Alliances” which appears in the Magazine of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Frankfurt.
Since January 2013 the new EU legal framework for research and development alliances is legally binding. Since then, this new framework leads to very basic questions regarding the legally effectiveness of already existing research and development cooperations. The author shows up a few of the typically existing legal questions with regard to the new legal framework. As a result, it is necessary to check already existing research and development cooperations for their accordance with the new EU- framework.
