Corporate Governance

Good corporate governance is critical to all enterprises for their sustainable development and enhancing corporate value in mid to long term, and recently corporate governance is becoming increasingly important in the Japanese market which is becoming progressively global. The Japanese legal regime and best practice of corporate governance continues to evolve with continued amendments of the Companies Act, the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and the rules of stock exchanges as well as corporate governance code, among others.

With profound knowledge of the relevant legal requirements and best practice, we provide comprehensive advice on all matters relating to corporate governance, including corporate governance policies, governance frameworks, disclosure, incentive and compensation issues, shareholders/stakeholders engagements, advice on shareholders meeting and internal control and relationship with shareholders and other stakeholders. This includes comprehensive support in the defense against actions of activist shareholders.

Our advice is always tailor-made and takes into account the company’s business objectives as well as the interests of the company’s stakeholders.
