What clients said
“Renato is really an excellent choice for EU
(and WTO) anti-dumping and anti-subsidy cases.”
“His open and transparent communication, his
engagement for the clients’ economic benefit and
his deep know-how of international trade law make
him more than a legal adviser – he becomes an
integrated partner.”
“If the stakes are high and you need top-quality
guidance to get the best possible result for your
company, you can trust that Renato will deliver.”
“I have worked with other lawyers for the same
case and no one stands out like Renato.”
