Moulis Legal leader named Asia-Pacific’s top trade lawyer

13.11.2018

Trusted international law ranking agency Who’s Who Legal has placed Moulis Legal’s Daniel Moulis at the top of its 2018 Asia-Pacific Trade and Customs Global Elite Thought Leader list. Based on feedback and recommendations from corporate networks and the law fraternity, Who’s Who Legal has stated:

Daniel Moulis at Moulis Legal gains international acclaim as “one of the best names in the field”, a view echoed in his position as the top name in the Asia-Pacific region in this year’s practice. His outstanding practice provides comprehensive expertise on cross-border and anti-dumping trade law matters.

While awards for our trade law practice may not be a new thing, the acknowledgements we receive are still very humbling and truly appreciated. Moulis said:

Businesses today compete in a highly fractured and disputed commercial environment. International trade treaties invite businesses to engage in the trade space, but when they get there they often find that all is not what they expected, with the competitive environment tilted against them in critical ways. We are being called upon ever more frequently to deal with not only the “traditional” instruments of trade regulation, such as anti-dumping, countervailing and safeguards, but also disputes about standards, quarantine, customs classification, transfer pricing and straight-out competition law breach. Another strong trend, regrettably, is a much greater take-up of domestic litigation, to complain against policy-rich decisions that transgress the legal framework within which they are made.

Thank you to our clients and colleagues for their endorsement, and congratulations to the other firms and individuals who were recognised in Who’s Who Legal 2018. Together, we all contribute to the value of our clients’ businesses, and to the economic efficiencies and personal goodwill that these interactions can generate.
