International Trade & WTO LAW
WTO Dispute settlement proceedings and advice to foreign governments.
WTO dispute settlement procedure
We advise corporate clients and foreign governments on all aspects of international trade law, with a particular emphasis on the impact of WTO Agreements. Our services include lobbying the European Commission during or after WTO dispute settlement proceedings. As an outcome of the WTO dispute settlement procedure, the losing party may face trade sanctions.
We have experience intervening before the European Commission when our clients’ interests are adversely affected by the preliminary list of trade-sanctioned items imposed upon the losing party in the dispute settlement ruling.
Advice to foreign governments for the implementation of WTO Agreements
We also have experience advising foreign governments such as the ACP countries (African, Caribbean, and Pacific countries) within the framework of the implementation of WTO agreements.
