Biography • Trade & Customs

Nicolas Lockhart is a partner in Sidley's Geneva office and a member of the firm's international trade and arbitration group, with a practice that focuses on international trade rules, in particular at the World Trade Organization (WTO). His clients include companies, trade associations, and governments, and he helps them address market access, and other regulatory issues concerning trade in goods and services and intellectual property rights.

Drawing on more than 15 years in the field of international dispute settlement, Mr Lockhart offers clients an in-depth knowledge of WTO law. He has a practice that is characterised by diversity. He has worked with WTO members as complainants, respondents and third parties in numerous disputes involving: anti-dumping measures; customs valuation; import and export licensing and quotas; intellectual property rights; national and most-favoured nation treatment; sanitary measures; subsidies; technical regulations and standards; and the transparency and administration of trade measures. He has also worked on disputes touching on WTO exceptions for public morality, public health, conservation of natural resources, customs enforcement, and free trade agreements.

Mr Lockhart complements his dispute settlement work with policy-related advice to clients in the Doha Development Round of trade negotiations. He has counselled WTO members and commercial stakeholders in relation to agricultural and industrial subsidies, anti-dumping and countervailing measures, dispute settlement rules and services.
