Our market leading M&A team in Tokyo and globally continued to support our Japanese clients on their cross-border M&A. As our track record shows, we continue to be trusted by major Japanese corporates when making acquisitions across a variety of different jurisdictions and sectors.
Our work demonstrates that our most prominent strengths continue to be working on the most high profile Japan to Europe cross-border M&A deals.
Furthermore, we have been actively advising our corporate clients on data protection-related work as a part of their overseas expansion plan. With the impending implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, which will heavily affect Japanese companies with operations in Europe) and other related regulations, we have been supporting a number of blue-chip companies in this area, including leading Japanese telecommunications, multinational retail, pharmaceutical and energy companies.
