In addition to our in-house team’s extensive experience dealing with international disputes and negotiating with government offices in other jurisdictions, we have strong relationships with reputable lawyers and law firms in numerous foreign jurisdictions and cooperate with them to provide prompt and comprehensive advice.
- U.S. Practice
- Our strategic alliance with Miura & Partners US based in San Francisco, allows us to support businesses in a wide range of fields including mergers and acquisitions, as well as ongoing operations and management of foreign subsidiaries. With our extensive cross-border experience, we support U.S. companies entering the Japanese market or acquiring Japanese companies.
- Asia Practice
- In recent years, many Japanese companies have expanded their business operations in other Asian countries. M&P’s lawyers have worked in prominent Asian jurisdictions such as China, India, and Singapore. With qualifications and work experience in various locations in Asia, and a deep understanding of each country's culture, our Japanese, English, and Chinese-speaking attorneys are united in providing meticulous support for business in a wide range of fields, including mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, competition law, intellectual property rights transactions, disputes, and global investigation.
- European practice
- Europe has specific regulations that Japanese companies are not necessarily familiar with and therefore can have difficulty complying with. As we have an attorney on our team with experience working at a major European law firm, and an attorney with qualification in UK, our firm is able to provide high quality one-stop service to Japanese clients on various legal matters such as M&A or investment with European companies and compliance with European law.
- International Trade Law
- M&P’s lawyers have extensive experience in international trade law. Our lawyers have successfully advised clients on World Trade Organization agreements, investment trade agreements, economic partnership agreements, and other related issues. When our clients face unfair treatment in Japan or overseas, our lawyers work closely with them to find an effective solution. Our team also provides support related to trade remedy measures such as customs enforcement and anti-dumping and safeguard measures. We also provide support related to security trade control such as export of weapons or of cargo or technology with the potential to be diverted for military use.
