Our team has an unparalleled track record of success supporting our clients on their U.S. - Japan related business matters, including M&A transactions, commercial litigation and internal investigations.

Nishimura & Asahi is the largest law firm in Japan and the largest international law firm headquartered in Japan. Our lawyers, a team skilled in U.S.-related matters based in our New York office as well as U.S. licensed attorneys working in our other offices, regularly advise on U.S. - Japan related matters, including sophisticated business transactions, litigation, regulatory investigations and regulatory filings. Our New York office further allows us to efficiently and effectively support our clients throughout the United States to achieve their business objectives.

Our attorneys have significant experience advising clients on in-bound and out-bound U.S. M&A transactions, joint-ventures, strategic alliances and complex finance transactions. We also regularly coordinate due diligence exercises and assist clients to navigate through the different deal making techniques deployed in the United States and Japan. We champion ourselves as cross-border deal makers and problem solvers, with our attorneys providing practical business solutions.

As the global economy becomes more interconnected, multi-jurisdictional issues are becoming increasingly more common for companies to experience. We have a proven track record successfully advising our clients on how to handle these issues, including regulatory investigations, litigation, trade disputes and merger filings. Our knowledge of Japanese and U.S. legal regimes and business practices allows us to effectively develop litigation strategy and conduct fact finding, evidence gathering, discovery, and preparation for cross-examination.

We regularly work in collaboration with foremost U.S. law firms and we are the sole Japan member of the world leading Lex Mundi network of independent law firms.
