Anderson Mori to Offer EU-Japan Trade Advisement


Posted on February 23, 2010 at 1:02 AM

With foreign lawyer Vassili Moussis’s certification as a gaikokuho jimu bengoshi (registered foreign lawyer ), Anderson Mori & Tomotsune, a Japanese ‘big-four’ firm, will now offer EU legal advisory services in its antitrust & competition practice.

This move will make Anderson Mori’s antitrust & competition practice one of the select firms in Japan that can provide legal advice on European competition and regulatory rules, allowing the firm to target the trade between the EU and Japan – Japan is the EU’s fifth leading importer.

Moussis stated: “We expect many more foreign-to-foreign transactions to be made notifiable to the Japan Fair Trade Commission. Up until now these transactions would very rarely trigger notification thresholds in Japan, but the amendments are now aligned with international practice.”
