Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has been attracting investment by Japanese companies in a wide range of industries due to its geographical advantages, being located in the center of shipping in South Asia, high education and income levels, and security and safety. Its relatively loose foreign capital investment restrictions have also helped it to position itself as a gateway for Japanese companies to invest in South Asia.

We provide a wide range of high-quality legal services to Japanese clients in connection with their investments and expansion into Sri Lanka (including M&A transactions, joint venture formation, general commercial transactions, infrastructure/project financing, compliance, labor matters and dispute resolution) in cooperation with prominent local law firms. Further, we actively provide information relating to Sri Lankan law to Japanese companies through publications and newsletters.
