International Arbitration

Our international arbitration team has been representing both domestic and foreign clients for years in international arbitration, both ad hoc and institutional, under the rules of various institutions, including the ICC, AAA/ICDR, SIAC, LCIA, CIETAC and JCAA and UNCITRAL rules.

The disputes that our team handles cover a wide range of matters, including those concerning joint ventures, M&A, corporate alliances, investment, infrastructure, construction, oil and gas, energy, technology transfer, intellectual property, sales, distribution and shipping. Our international arbitration team closely works together with experts of each different field within our firm in order to maximize our clients’ positions. We always focus on our clients’ needs and objectives and offer solutions tailored to our clients’ needs.

International arbitration inevitably involves the laws of multiple jurisdictions, and in this global era it is not uncommon for our clients to be sued across multiple jurisdictions in spite of arbitration agreements. This is particularly so when disputes involve emerging market jurisdictions, which can lead to various unique considerations. Our team has particularly deep knowledge and expertise in arbitration involving emerging markets, where our clients need to resort to not only contract claims but also investment treaty claims against states or state related entities.

We in resolving disputes draw on the vast resources available to us, including our offices in Tokyo and overseas as well as our strong network and connection with other top-tier international law firms.

Our team is dedicated not only to resolving disputes in individual cases, as counsel and arbitrator, but also to improving international arbitration practice by way of our deep involvement in activities of international organizations, such as the IBA, to shape soft law in the international arbitration field.
