A Word of Introduction

GCO is an independent law firm specialising in all aspects of EU Regulatory law. GCO is based in Brussels Belgium, the city headquarters of the key institutions of the European Union.

Our client base is predominantly international. We often work with companies with no formal presence in Brussels or in the EU.

As our work often involves highly technical issues, we regularly work with, or create, multi-disciplinary teams of advisers.

Above all we aim to provide our clients with effective advice and counselling which responds to their specific needs, remembering all the time that our role is to develop winning strategies for our clients not merely to offer legal advice.
