Clotilde du Parc, who joined Van Bael & Bellis in 2002,  heads the firm’s Geneva office which is dedicated to WTO law matters. She specialises in all areas of international trade law and has been involved in a number of the firm's most significant WTO cases over the past number of years, including assisting the Government of China in its successful WTO challenge of the anti-dumping measures imposed by the European Union on iron or steel fasteners and assisting the Argentinean government in its successful WTO challenge of the EU anti-dumping measures on imports of biodiesel from Argentina. 

Trade law practice

Ms du Parc commented on her promotion: 'I am delighted to be joining the Van Bael & Bellis partnership. We have a strong international trade law practice with a team of talented and committed lawyers. I look forward to contributing to our practice in my new role as partner in the coming years.' Clotilde's promotion brings the number of trade law partners at Van Bael & Bellis to eight. Jean-François Bellis, managing partner, says: 'We are very pleased to welcome Clotilde to the partnership. The firm has a thriving WTO trade law practice and I am confident that, as managing partner of our Geneva office, Clotilde will make a great contribution to the further development of this practice.'
