Vassili Moussis is an English-qualified solicitor and a registered foreign lawyer with the Japanese Bar. Prior to joining Anderson Mori & Tomotsune in Tokyo, he practised EU, UK and international competition law in Brussels and London for close to 10 years at leading UK and US firms, mainly advising on merger control matters and international antitrust investigations.

At Anderson Mori & Tomotsune, his practice focuses on EU, Japanese and international competition law with a particular emphasis on merger control and international cartel matters. Mr Moussis has been involved in a large number of high-profile merger cases before the European Commission and the Japan Fair Trade Commission. Mr Moussis also has extensive experience advising on cartel investigations in the EU and Japan as well as coordinating defence strategies across major jurisdictions around the world. He is increasingly involved in litigious matters, including follow-on civil litigation before US courts.

He studied law in Belgium (Licence en droit) and the UK, and holds an LLM as well as a PhD from University College London on comparative EU and Japanese competition law. He also worked for a year at the European Commission’s Directorate General for Competition as an administrative trainee where he was mainly involved in policy and international issues including cooperation with the Japan Fair Trade Commission.
