DLA Piper Appoints International Trade Partner in Brussels

17th July 2023

DLA Piper has appointed Anna Dias, an experienced International Trade partner, to its Brussels office. Anna starts on 17 July, joining from a major international firm, where she spent the last 12 years and was a Partner. Prior to that, Anna worked for the Brazilian Mission before the World Trade Organisation in Geneva (Young Lawyers Progamme) after spending four years at a major Brazilian law firm.

Drawing on over 15 years' experience in the field, Anna is a recognized expert in International Trade law and in EU Regulatory matters. She has been particularly active in representing companies and governments on complex trade remedies investigations (anti-dumping, anti-subsidy and safeguard procedures) and in providing in-depth WTO law-related assistance. Anna also specializes in EU economic sanctions against third countries and assists clients in advisory, compliance, transaction and contentious matters arising from the EU regimes of sanctions.

Anna also advises clients in a broad variety of other trade related regulatory issues, including those resulting from the ever-increasing EU legal instruments with a direct impact in the EU market. She also advises companies on market access issues, such as those relating to regulatory barriers, discriminatory practice, free-trade agreements, etc.

This appointment builds on an already strong European platform, with a presence in our offices in Belgium, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands and the UK, with further plans for expansion.

Kristof De Vulder, Country Managing Partner in Belgium, adds: “We are thrilled to welcome Anna to our Trade and Government relations practice. Her international background and in-depth experience with the WTO and the EU institutions make her a perfect choice to bolster our market leading global activities. Anna will be reinforcing the work of our existing team led by Richard Sterneberg, focusing specifically on regulatory matters linked to global trade and supply chains.”
