Logistical challenges and cultural differences can be major obstacles to doing business across borders and oceans. The firm’s Asia Pacific group has developed a deep understanding of each distinct Asian market. We leverage our connections with leading Asian companies, law firms and other advisers to help forge valuable relationships for clients in Asia and around the globe.
Fasken assists Asian companies acquiring or investing in Canadian companies, or establishing businesses in other foreign jurisdictions. We also advise companies expanding into Asia. With extensive experience in international disputes, our litigators have represented clients in all major arbitral regimes.
Sensitive to the unique attributes of each Asian market and with expertise in civil and common law, we provide strategic advice on cross-border and multijurisdictional business activities. In addition to English, French and Spanish, many of our lawyers and support staff are fluent in Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Japanese, Korean, and various European languages.
Members of the Asia Pacific group share extensive industry knowledge in mining, oil & gas, renewable and nuclear energy, manufacturing, distribution, automotive and retail. They advise on all aspects of international commerce, from competition and mergers & acquisitions, to licensing and outsourcing.
