Click for Japanese



Although we have assisted in some major acquisitions of US assets and business by Japanese firms, of late most of our work in this area has been for US and European equity funds purchasing Japanese businesses or assets (predominantly real estate, including trust schemes). We have experience translating agreements associated with joint ventures, tender offers, MBOs, bidding, stock transfers, stock exchanges, and purchases. We assist at all stages of the transaction, most frequently at the due diligence and contract-drafting stages.


We have extensive experience in real estate acquisitions: bid letters, proposals, engineering reports and due diligence reports, purchase and sale agreements, trust agreements, asset management agreements, property management agreements, master lease agreements, and asset securitization notifications.
