By Stanley C. Ruchelman, Alev Fanny Karaman, and Rusudan Shervashidze

In a recent opinion, C.J.E.U. Advocate General Juliane Kokott suggested that the terms used in the landmark Marks and Spencer decision should now be abandoned. Marks and Spencer involved U.K. group relief legislation that, among other things, allowed a U.K. group parent company to offset the losses of its U.K. subsidiaries against the parent’s profits.
