Welcome to the website of the Committee on Legal Affairs
 
 

Responsible for intellectual property, the committee will be dealing in this legislature with the reform of the EU's trademark rules, trade secrets and the future of copyright, following its previous work on digital rights management and copyright in the information society.
 
As far as concerns company law, its first priorities will be to finish work on the new insolvency rules and consider the new proposal on single member private limited companies. At the same time, the committee will be maintaining its focus on citizens, families and businesses in the internal market with the forthcoming review of the private international law rules on jurisdiction and recognition and enforcement of judgments in matrimonial matters and  matters of parental responsibility (including child abduction) and the proposal for updating the small claims procedure.
 
Lastly, the committee helps Parliament as a whole build an informed opinion on a number of very technical issues, including supervising the use of delegated and implementing legislation, ensuring proper consideration is given to input from national Parliaments under the subsidiarity mechanism and taking decisions on the defence of Parliament's interests in court.
 
I hope that you will find this website informative and would like to thank you for your interest in the Committee on Legal Affairs.
 
Pavel Svoboda, Chair
