Rudi Leleu is the director of international trade based in Dentons’ Brussels office. As a system analyst by education and through his experience as a case officer in the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Trade and several renowned international law firms for over 20 years, Rudi gained invaluable practical experience and an exceptional level of expertise in the areas of anti-dumping, anti-subsidy and safeguard measures. He is recognised by his peers and clients as one of the leading experts in the field.
Rudi concentrates on all aspects of international trade policy with an emphasis on trade defence instruments within the framework of WTO. He represented countless clients in trade remedy proceedings before the EU institutions and other major investigating authorities worldwide.
As the client’s individual economic situation with regards production and sales has a major impact and is the main decisive aspect of the outcome of trade defence investigations, Rudi focuses on a detailed structural analysis of the client’s specific situation. This unique skill allows him to develop the best individually tailored legal strategy based upon the results of such analysis and gives him the opportunity to assist his clients in an accurate preparation of detailed replies to the investigating authorities’ inquiries and offer them expert assistance throughout the entire course of the proceeding.
WWL says: Rudi Leleu is "definitely one of the top international trade policy experts in Brussels".
