Emilie Franklin hosted Australian and Chinese businesses at a breakfast seminar on developments in China’s intellectual property regime in our Brisbane office on 14 August 2014. The attendees at the business breakfast included Australian businesses undertaking or exploring investment opportunities in China, and Chinese businesses interested in the expanding two-way trade in intellectual property. The key message? Intellectual property protection in China is improving and risks for foreign business can be anticipated and minimised. Before entering the Chinese market Australian businesses should act to protect their intellectual property rights using early registration and enforceable contracts. Please contact us for more information.
Christopher Hewitt and Charles Zhan hosted China-Australia investors and traders at an informative breakfast seminar on business compliance in our Brisbane office on 6 August 2014.

Who’s Who Legal, in its October 2009 analysis of the world’s trade and customs lawyers, has included Daniel Moulis as one of three internationally well-regarded lawyers outside the US, Canada and Belgium. The publication, which compiles its results based on its poll of the opinions of law firm clients and trade and customs lawyers from around the world, reported that Daniel Moulis of Moulis Legal was “superb”, “experienced in dispute settlement body proceedings”, and had “been involved in many of the landmark trade law cases in Australia”.
Daniel Moulis has been recognised by Chambers Global 2007 as the leading individual for WTO/International Trade in Australia. Chambers Global’s rankings are based on in-depth interviews with corporate counsel and with other individuals responsible for legal service purchasing in client corporations. 2007 was a very active year for us in trade advisory work. Consistent with Chambers Global’s observation that [a]s the practice of international law evolves, the precise location of individual lawyers becomes less relevant, the domicile of our clients and their matters were in many cases external to Australia, with Moulis Legal being appointed as lead counsel for regulatory and commercial matters affecting our clients’ interests in countries such as Japan, China, the United States and Brazil.
