We regularly act as international counsel on Japan-related transactions, sometimes working in collaboration with Japanese law firms. We help our clients identify their strategic priorities and we acquire an in-depth understanding of their specific business challenges.

We represent Japanese companies and financial institutions, as well as Japanese affiliates of US and other non-Japanese companies. Among our Japan-based clients are financial institutions, insurance companies, shipping and freight transportation companies, steel manufacturers and utility companies, as well as multinational conglomerates involved in trading, energy, mining, information technology, transportation and other infrastructure, life sciences and real estate.

Our multilingual, multicultural practice comprises dedicated international practitioners, including native Japanese and Japanese-speaking lawyers and other lawyers who understand Japan’s business practices and culture based on years of experience working in Japan and with Japanese companies around the globe.
Mayer Brown has a long history of acting for top-tier Japanese clients.
