Japan, along with numerous other countries, controls the export of military sensitive goods and technologies (including relevant dual-use goods and technologies) in order to maintain both national and international peace and security.
In this regard, we are assisting companies in complying with these rules as well as supporting, in cases of potential violation of the rules, the companies in government investigations.
Many other developed nations maintain similar or stricter export control regimes. In particular, the US regime is noted for its complexity, strictness, exterritorial reach and severe sanctions and it is, therefore, critical to understand the details of the rules to ensure compliance. Nishimura & Asahi has considerable expertise in this highly complex area and we are able to support Japanese companies in coordination with U.S. law firms.
