Japan is a powerful participant in global business and financial markets and related regulatory arenas. Many of Japan’s major multinational companies in the financial services, automotive, electronics, heavy machinery, life sciences, and real estate sectors are both worldwide leaders in their respective industries and also clients of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer.
Our decades of Japan-related experience includes significant corporate transactions, including M&A, licensing, joint ventures, real estate, securitization, and commercial paper programs; bankruptcy and restructuring matters; regulatory and compliance issues across a range of substantive areas, including antitrust, anti-corruption, and trade sanctions and controls; and dispute resolution.
We serve Japanese clients doing business in the US, UK, EU, China, and elsewhere, as well as clients in these geographies seeking to do business in Japan, in resolving complex legal challenges of cross-border matters. In addition, we draw on our strong relationships with leading Japanese law firms to ensure our clients receive both global and local perspectives.
Through our extensive experience with Japanese clients across a broad range of practice areas, our lawyers have a deep understanding of Japanese business and culture that they bring to bear in advising clients on their most challenging Japan-related matters.
