Merger Control

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) the analysis of substantive issues under the Antimonopoly Law and other antitrust/competition law issues, (b) advice on remedies, and (c) filings with various competition authorities (including the Japan Fair Trade Commission) in response to the increasing number of complex competition laws. Our lawyers work in cooperation with excellent antitrust/competition lawyers outside of Japan as necessary. We have extensive experience in groundbreaking cases concerning global market definition and mergers in an oligopolistic market.

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., mergers and acquisitions. 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.
