What the team is known for

Also represents interested third parties and sovereign states in WTO dispute settlement proceedings and safeguarding investigations. Further active for industry boards on EC investigations and has additional experience advising on international sanctions regimes and applications for licences.

Strengths

The lawyers win praise from clients for their "great expertise in the fields they work in," and it is further noted that "they are responsive to any emails, always there to assist and respond to you quickly," and that "they have many areas of expertise. So in complex cases, we sometimes need to use other fields of knowledge of King & Spalding, and they have that ready."

"They take a lot of initiative," says a client, who adds: "They don't expect the data and everything to be provided by the client association or its members. But they also look into how to resolve the problems through international data sources. It is very pleasant to work with them, because they will always try to find the right angle."
