International Trade & Trade Negotiations

Christian covers both WTO and EU rules on trade in goods and services. He has particular experience in:

  • agriculture, 
  • domestic regulation of services,
  • government / public procurement, 
  • subsidies / state aid,
  • technical barriers to trade,
  • trade facilitation / customs (valuation) and
  • dispute settlement (WTO dispute settlement system and litigation before the European Court of Justice / General Court of the EU).

In addition, Christian has worked on the interface between trade and environment (especially climate change-related policies), trade and energy (especially policies related to renewable energy, in particular as regards biofuels) as well as trade and sustainable development (including consumer protection).  

 

Further, Christian advises WTO members, especially developing countries and LDCs, in the Doha-Round (DDA) negotiations, in particular in the areas of rules, including fisheries subsidies, and services, including the LDC services waiver.
