Mergers & Acquisitions / Corporate

In any M&A transaction, both the seller and the buyer have their own objectives. Needless to say, it is important to fulfill these through the implementation of the M&A transaction. Simply carrying out routine work without attention to the objectives leads to unsuccessful transactions, overlooking the risks that the client really needs to know or resulting in a structure or contract that fails to meet the objectives of the client, although this involves take time and money.

Instead of carrying out routine work, we will accurately share the objectives of the M&A transaction with the client and provide tailored advice in full consideration of the peculiarities of each individual scenario. Based on the knowledge and experience we have acquired through our involvement in domestic deals, cross-border deals and other large M&A transactions at leading domestic and overseas law firms, we will provide advice that will be truly beneficial to the client at all stages of the implementation of transactions, including considering the structure, investigating the legal risks (due diligence) of the party to be integrated with or to be acquired by the client, preparing the related agreements and the associated negotiations. In addition, through our experience in dealing with a variety of disputes relating to mergers and acquisitions, such as claims for share purchases and claims for damages due to the violation of representations and warranties, we are able to take action in the event of disputes. Our lawyers have had experience dealing with a number of cross-border M&A incidents involving Japanese companies at overseas law firms. We will therefore provide effective assistance with cross-border M&A transactions in cooperation with local lawyers.
