Now in its third decade, our Tokyo office has built an unsurpassed practice among U.S. law firms, offering experienced transactional lawyers with Japanese language ability. We launched a Tokyo practice in order to serve clients doing business in Japan and to counsel Japanese clients operating globally. Our lawyers in Tokyo regularly advise on many of the largest, groundbreaking deals in the market. Clients turn to us because of the high caliber of our attorneys and our deep knowledge and understanding of Japanese corporate culture – and because we put the collective knowledge of the entire Firm at work in order to help achieve their commercial goals.
Our Tokyo team provides both Japanese and international clients with advice that demonstrates our deep understanding of the following practice areas:
- Capital markets (IPOs, global equity offerings, bank capital transactions and J-REITs)
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Cross-border private fund formation
In concert with litigators in our other offices, we also provide support to Japanese companies involved in investigations by U.S. authorities (relating to antitrust, FCPA, OFAC, etc.), complex court cases, international arbitrations and dispute resolution.
