China is now one of the world’s leading economic powers, and is expected to continue to grow as one of the most important countries for Japanese businesses, not only as a manufacturing base, but also as an enormous consumer market in its own right. Our firm is specialized in meeting our clients’ needs for reliable advice relating to China, and has developed its know-how in matters relating to China by handling a broad and diverse spectrum of China-related projects, such as M&A and group restructurings, and merger filings; consideration of investment schemes and negotiation for the establishment of joint ventures and local subsidiaries; antitrust matters, including cartel, resale price maintenance and antitrust investigations; intellectual property matters, including licensing and anti-counterfeiting strategies; compliance matters; labor and employment matters, including the establishment of working regulations and disputes; dispute resolution, including arbitration; cross-border loans, factoring, structured finance/securitization and other financing instruments; and advice on the investments by Chinese companies into Japan. The lawyers of “China Practice Group” in our Tokyo office and our local office in Shanghai are perfectly positioned to provide prompt and accurate advice of a high caliber to all of our clients, by maximizing the use of our accumulated know-how and taking full advantage of our firm’s co-operative relationship with Chinese local law firms.
