US firm Jones Day has expanded its trade practice in Brussels with the hire of Van Bael & Bellis partner Renato Antonini.
Antonini, previously a partner at the domestic firm, will lead Jones Day’s Brussels international trade practice. He becomes the 12th partner in the office and joins the firm’s global government regulation team, comprising over 70 lawyers worldwide.
