We advise clients on EU rules and their impact on Swiss law to help them comply with requirements and qualify for benefits under the EU legal system. We have substantive EU experience in Zurich, with several practitioners focusing on EU law and advising clients on bilateral treaties between Switzerland and the EU. We also provide trade law and compliance advice in relation to exports and imports, sanctions and embargoes, among others.
Our WTO practice group offers clients broad global resources necessary to take advantage of existing WTO rules as well as potential opportunities in multilateral trade. Our team consists of a core of practitioners experienced in virtually every aspect of international trade policy and regulation.
We also have substantial experience in Geneva, where the WTO headquarters is located and where most WTO negotiation and dispute settlement activities take place. Our team plays a strategic role as it has direct access to the Permanent Missions of WTO Members, and can offer clients on-site assistance on WTO matters, including counseling, advocacy during negotiation and representation in dispute settlement.
