Our Services

Inbound Investments to Japan

We offer a wide range of legal services for foreign organizations and investors in relation to their investments in Japan or their desire to invest in Japan. Similarly, for our Japanese clients, we offer a wide range of legal services in relation to their domestic investments in Japan, their international investments outside of Japan or their desire to invest in or outside Japan.

In addition to our lawyers who are qualified in Japan, many of whom have extensive experience with international transactions, our team is also strengthened by lawyers who are qualified in overseas jurisdictions, including the US, the PRC, and Australia, to name a few. We aim to provide the best possible legal services available on international matters, regardless of the country or sector, by supplementing our internal team of lawyers with lawyers from our unrivaled network of lawyers in other countries whom we have worked with on multiple occasions in the past. We offer legal services through our understanding of the differences between Japan and other countries, for example in their legal systems, business practices, and cultures, and provide advice by capitalizing on our wealth of experience. We are able to offer our services in either Japanese, English or Chinese.

In the past, we provided legal services to international clients in a wide range of practice areas including assisting in the formation of subsidiaries and preparation of internal regulations, M&A, compliance with Japanese foreign investment regulations, due diligence on Japanese subsidiaries of foreign companies seeking to list overseas, and offering legal opinions as well as day-to-day legal advice on labor issues, intellectual property and compliance of Japanese subsidiaries, and negotiations with employees of such subsidiaries. Our experience includes assisting foreign parent companies in internal fraud investigations against their Japanese subsidiaries and providing services for foreign companies including procedures relating to Japanese origin certification. We also have substantial experience in assisting our international clients in litigation, arbitration, and negotiation in Japan with satisfactory results.
