We strive to deliver the best value to our clients in their purchase of legal services and to help them to achieve the outcomes they want.

Our particular focus areas include international trade, public and administrative law, competition and consumer law, dispute resolution, intellectual property, technology law and general commercial law. Our business lawyers have substantial experience working on transactions throughout Europe, the US and Asia and special knowledge and experience of business and investment between Australia and China, spanning both cultures and their legal systems.

Moulis Legal was founded by our principal partner, Daniel Moulis, in 2005 on his return to Canberra from the Freehills Sydney partnership, now Herbert Smith Freehills. Since then Moulis Legal and individual lawyers within the firm have been highly ranked by respected peer review agencies Chambers & Partners, Who’s Who Legal and Best Lawyers. Our recognitions include consistent Band 1 recognition by Chambers & Partners Asia Pacific, and as one of Australia’s top 20 law firms (Chambers & Partners, 2015).

The strength in flexibility

A flexible workplace is so full of potential. It is a place where people are kicking all sorts of goals. They are happy, productive, ambitious and energised. They are full of ideas and full of enthusiasm, because they are both fuelled and supported by an easier engagement in life, in family and community. A flexible workplace is a stronger workplace.

The heart of diversity is at home

We agree that diversity in the workplace is desirable from ethical and economic standpoints. Achieving it, however, is not as simple as treating everyone exactly the same.

Diversity is not about being equal

Many diversity strategies have been founded in the belief that everyone should be equal, but is that the right approach? I recently saw this graphic on LinkedIn. Great game, great crowd but that’s not the story here. It’s a “spot the difference” between the spectators in the foreground of the two images and their view of the game.
