The globalization and liberalization of finance encourages continuous development of the financial products available in Japan. With the full enforcement of the Financial Instruments and the Exchange Law, regulations covering financial instruments have become increasingly complicated while related documentation has become more and more extensive. Furthermore, the ongoing revisions of regulations and easing of financial regulations under the Banking Law and the Insurance Business Law requires Japanese attorneys to continuously update their expertise.
Globalization of the finance industry has led to the development of highly complex financial products governed by an equally complex body of rules and regulations. In order to meet the expectations of our clients in this environment of daily change, we are always utilizing our thorough knowledge of the relevant laws and regulations as well as our profound understanding of their practical implementation as indispensable aspects of our advice.
Our practice in finance encompasses an extensive range, from advice with respect to financing substantial cross-border investments to counsel on the regulatory issues faced by foreign financial service providers entering Japan. Being active in the field of finance since the early days of securitization in Japan has given our attorneys a wealth of experience in dealing with regulators, thereby allowing them to actively participate in various academic lectures, publications, etc. concerning finance.
Our real estate practice covers the full range of legal services related to the acquisition, development and management of properties. We use our legal acumen to advise on the appropriate acquisition structure, to perform due diligence, and to prepare acquisition agreements.
