General Corporate

We advise Japanese and international companies on all of their legal needs arising from their day-to-day business operations, such as drafting and negotiating all kinds of commercial contracts, including, for example, sales and purchase agreements, distributorship agreements, business consignment agreements, joint venture agreements and asset purchase agreements. We offer our clients a comprehensive range of general corporate and business law services, including advice on the operation of shareholders and board meetings, corporate governance issues, tax and antitrust issues, issues relating to intellectual property rights, employment law issues, dispute resolution and financing-related legal issues.

We have also developed strong working relationships with major law firms from around the world, and we often work closely with foreign legal counsel to assist Japanese companies in matters involving overseas investments and/or other cross-border business ventures, including, for example, advice on obtaining local regulatory approvals and licenses, incorporation of legal entities in foreign jurisdictions, tax and structuring advice and documentation drafting and negotiation.

We have the expertise and resources to address a wide range of legal issues, often increasingly complex, that corporations, funds and other entities face in their diversified and global activity in a timely and specialized fashion.
