About

Provided by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

With more than 30 years of experience on the ground in Tokyo, we are a leader among U.S. law firms representing Japanese corporations and other Japanese institutions in cross-border transactions and in representing U.S. and other non-Japanese clients in connection with their activities in Japan. Our bilingual, bicultural Tokyo-based team is widely recognized for the excellence of its cross-border M&A practice in Japan and its work advising Japanese companies issuing securities in the U.S. and other global markets. We also have deep expertise in investment fund formations and cross-border restructurings. We have been involved in a number of landmark corporate matters, including the largest-ever acquisition of a Japanese company by a non-Japanese firm; the first tender offer in Japan for a JREIT; one of the largest mergers in Japanese history forming one of the biggest global financial institutions; and the first “PIPE” (private investment in public equity) transaction in Japan by a private equity investor.
