Comment: This recommended practice in customs and trade is esp. shaped by Brussels partner Bierwagen, who emphasizes advice on antidumping duties. Here he is active for both companies and the EU authorities, e.g. for the European Council in ECJ proceedings over import duties for bed products from Pakistan. The firm scored another success for the Ring Alliance: antidumping duties on imports of spiral notebook mechanisms from several Asian countries were extended for a third time for another five years. Questions on sanctions law and EU regulations are handled by a renowned partner from the ?state aid team. The practice still hardly makes any use of the German offices' Mittelstand contacts.
Strengths: Antidumping and subsidy duties, esp. expiry reviews and extensions, as well as advice on the refund of antidumping duties.
Recommended: Dr. Rainer Bierwagen.
