As the world is rapidly globalizing, one of the strengths of our law firm is to be able to provide global legal support from Japan. For outbound matters where Japanese companies are expanding overseas, or for inbound matters where foreign companies are entering Japan; we provide comprehensive legal services from establishing subsidiaries and branches, conducting mergers & acquisitions, IPOs, and other alternative exit strategies. For cross-border transactions, there are many aspects to take into account that do not appear in traditional contract negotiations such as language, jurisdiction, governing law and business culture. Our lawyers are sensitive to all of these key issues to ensure that every cross-border transaction goes forward smoothly. For jurisdictions that we do not have the capacity to handle, we partner with trustworthy local counsel and are careful to mitigate costs so that clients are not double billed.
