Since its opening in 1987, the Tokyo office has been widely recognized as a leader among U.S. law firms in the representation of Japanese companies and financial institutions in their most important cross-border matters. The office also frequently provides advice to major U.S. and other non-Japanese clients in connection with their activities in Japan.
Our Tokyo-based team has extensive experience handling mergers and acquisitions, capital markets transactions, joint ventures, investment fund formations and restructurings, among others, and has been involved in a number of landmark transactions in Japan. The office works in concert with our New York, Washington D.C. and Wilmington offices to provide support to Japanese clients facing U.S. regulatory or civil litigation matters and to handle internal investigations. Drawing on expertise in our other offices, our Tokyo-based team can also assist clients in a variety of additional areas, including intellectual property, antitrust, trade regulation, bankruptcy, tax and real estate matters.
