The benefits of EU membership

Laws passed recently to harmonize Czech and EU laws have brought about chaos in the country's legislation, not least because a number of valid laws now contradict each other. The resulting legal chaos could further choke an already overburdened legal system.

Commenting on the situation, Ladislav Storek, a partner in the Prague office of the international law firm Salans, said: "It's obvious that the legal environment in the Czech Republic worsened after tens of new laws were thrown in because of the EU harmonization."

However, it is not all bad. Storek says law firms have experienced increased business. Who said that there were no benefits from EU membership?
