Antitrust and Competition Law Advice

For decades, we have been providing legal services in the area covering the Antimonopoly Law of Japan and the Subcontract Act, one of the most important areas of law that closely relates to the business of our clients of virtually every industry sector.

Such services include those related to advice concerning (a) forming business alliances with competitors, under which distribution networks are established taking into account resale price maintenance and other vertical restrictions, (b) implementing competitive processes, such as tender bids and trade association activities, (c) conducting risk analysis on predatory pricing and private monopolization, (d) engaging in prior consultation with the Japan Fair Trade Commission regarding the foregoing, and (e) preparing compliance programs and legal training programs for officers and employees, and carrying out legal audits.

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 provide advice that requires multi-faceted analysis in cooperation with our lawyers who are experts in other areas of law, such as corporate, labor, litigation and corporate crisis management in a seamless manner. Further, in cross-border cases, we take the lead based on our own extensive knowledge of both Japanese and foreign antitrust/competition laws, while providing high-quality services in cooperation with trusted, first-class overseas antitrust lawyers.
