The Reform of the EU Trade Defence Instruments

WWL T&C 2016 - Philippe De Baere

By Philippe De Baere, Van Bael & Bellis For the arsenal of EU trade defence instruments, 2016 is likely to be crucial. The main issue in debate is whether China should be granted market economy status (MES) after 11 December 2016. Linked to this question is whether the granting of MES to China should be accompanied by a modernisation of the trade defence instruments in order to mitigate the effect of China's new status. Finally, following a number of lost WTO disputes and cases before the European Court of Justice, it is widely felt that the EU should reinforce the transparency of its investigations.

Hunting Hidden Treasures

WWL Litigation 2016 - Bettina Knoetzl

By Bettina Knötzl, Knoetzl As international commercial links increase, it becomes more and more important for creditors to collect on claims across international borders, to be able to locate assets and – with the assistance of the courts – to act quickly to attach them. Litigators find themselves more frequently engaged in cases where their clients are victims of white-collar crime such as fraud, breach of fiduciary duties, deceit and corruption, or they may be simply asked to collect outstanding receivables in various jurisdictions.
