Restructuring and Insolvency

Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu is widely recognized as one of the premier law firms for restructuring in Japan.

We provide high quality legal service not only to distressed companies themselves but also to various interested parties, such as financial institutions, creditors, sponsors, investors, parent companies or shareholders and business partners. Our clients include not only listed companies with global operations, but also unlisted companies, foreign companies, corporate founders, and any other parties with an interest in business restructuring.

Our firm has lawyers with a high level of expertise in various fields, and is capable of assembling the most appropriate project team for each case from all areas, including M&A and Finance. This “flexibility in team formation” and ”high level of expertise” are among the outstanding strengths of our firm.

With these strengths, we are capable of handling all aspects of business restructuring, including preparing business restructuring schemes and scenario analysis, assisting in the formulation of restructuring plans, coordinating with financial institutions and negotiating agreements with sponsors, and assisting in the implementation of plans. Our strengths are not limited to in-court insolvency proceedings such as corporate reorganization, civil rehabilitation, and bankruptcy, but are also more effectively demonstrated in risk assessment, business restructuring and acquisition negotiations in out-of-court workouts (such as business turnaround ADR).

In the industrial sector, we have in-depth knowledge of a wide range of industries, including manufacturing (including automobiles), high-tech, a wide range of financial services (including project finance), real estate (including hotels and inns), and various types of retail.
