Antitrust Litigation/Investigation

We have been providing legal services in the area of the Antimonopoly Law of Japan, an important area of law that closely relates to the business of our clients, since the establishment of our firm, as well as the Subcontract Act and the Unreasonable Premiums and Misleading Representation Prevention Act.

Such services include, among others, those related to (a) internal investigations of conduct in violation of those laws, (b) leniency applications, (c) investigations by competition authorities, whether the Japan Fair Trade Commission or any other competition authorities outside Japan, (d) administrative/judicial proceedings regarding the decisions of competition authorities, and (e) litigation involving antitrust/competition issues, including damages claims and derivative suits against the management of the defendant companies.

Our antitrust/competition law practice is unique and highly respected in that we have antitrust lawyers who possess in-depth expertise in, and highly specialized knowledge of, the antitrust/competition law of Japan as well as solid knowledge of the antitrust/competition laws of various overseas jurisdictions, including experience in communicating and liaising with competition authorities. Our lawyers routinely provide services concerning antitrust law in cooperation with lawyers who are experts in other areas of law, e.g., litigation, as well as lawyers in our Corporate Crisis Management groups who are experts in those areas. Further, in cross-border cases, we provide legal services based not only on our own extensive knowledge of the antitrust/competition law of Japan and that of overseas jurisdictions, but also in cooperation with well-regarded overseas antitrust lawyers who provide high-quality services.
