Van Bael & Bellis partner Pablo Muñiz receives Client Choice Award 2018
Van Bael & Bellis partner Pablo Muñiz has been honoured with a Client Choice Award 2018 as leading counsel for International Trade work in the EU.
Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards recognise those law firm partners around the world who stand apart for the excellent client service they provide. The criteria for the awards focus on a lawyer’s ability to add real value to clients’ business above and beyond other players in the market. Uniquely, law firm partners can be nominated only by corporate counsel.
Described by clients as someone who “demonstrates true dedication to his profession” and “can be relied upon to deliver exceptional results”, Pablo commented on the award: "I am grateful to my clients for valuing me as a trusted member of their respective teams, and I will continue to do my utmost in helping them serve their wider commercial objectives."
Pablo has specialised in EU trade law since 2001, with a particular emphasis on EU customs law, including customs classification, origin issues, customs valuation controversies, export controls and sanctions. He regularly advises clients on multi-jurisdictional customs matters involving the European Commission, OLAF, and the World Customs Organization (WCO). Pablo represents clients before national customs administrations, including the Spanish customs administration. His extensive experience includes litigation before the EU and national courts.
The awards ceremony was held in London at One Great George Street on 1 February 2018, with the results under embargo until 8 February. More information on the awards can be found here.
