Since entering Japan in 1988, we have earned a reputation for providing innovative and high quality advice, steering complex transactions to a successful conclusion.
Our office covers the full gamut of corporate work, including mergers and acquisitions, investments and joint ventures. Our projects and banking practice is recognised as one of the leading practices in the country. We are active across all sectors and have particular experience in the oil and gas, power, infrastructure, petrochemicals, life sciences, food and beverage and real estate sectors.
Our team offers both international and Japanese law capability. We are often the first port of call for domestic and foreign companies on both in-bound transactions and out-bound strategic transactions involving Japanese entities.
Through our long history in Tokyo, we are praised for our understanding of the cultural and other non-legal aspects of doing business in Japan. Coupled with our extensive network of offices around the world, this proves to be a powerful combination.
