Nishimura & Asahi’s dispute resolution specialists work together with professionals from its corporate practice to provide effective, innovative, and efficient solutions to complex commercial disputes.
From the very inception of our firm we have handled corporate disputes for our clients and are a front-runner in the area. In the practice of corporate-related dispute resolution, we have been trail blazers involved in many complex and innovative areas that academics or practitioners have not yet addressed. As the largest law firm in Japan, we have tackled these difficult areas with the cooperation of lawyers specialized in corporate practice and dispute resolution, and have achieved a remarkable track record of success. Our experience extends to numerous areas, including derivative lawsuits, lawsuits to pursue responsibility of corporate executives, corporate litigation such as to request annulment of a resolution of a general shareholders meeting, requests for provisional remedies such as requests for preliminary injunctions to prohibit the exercise of voting rights, non-contentious litigation such as requests for inspections of accounting and defenses against hostile takeovers.
