Japanese investors are respected as a major force in international dealmaking. Fasken has a proud history and extensive experience assisting Japanese companies in achieving their goals. The firm’s Japan Group was involved in establishing several prominent Japanese companies in Canada, and continues to advise them on their business activities. We also assist non-Japanese clients in establishing businesses in Japan, and on mergers & acquisitions and joint ventures involving Japanese entities. We represent Japanese entities in class action lawsuits, antitrust and regulatory proceedings including in the electronics and automotive industries.
Providing counsel in all areas of business, the Japan Group advises on transactions, business arrangements, litigation and regulatory compliance. Clients benefit from our longstanding relationships with prominent law, accounting, investment and other professional firms in Japan.
