8:30 – 11 am
Corporate Breakfast Seminar

The Japanese economy has been stuck in a quagmire for the last 13 years. Among other things, to jump start the economy, the Japanese government has promoted foreign acquisition of Japanese companies and foreign investments in the long-suffering real estate market. At this seminar, a senior investment banker examines the changing business climate in Japan and discusses whether market conditions really encourage foreign investment. Lawyers from Morrison & Foerster LLP’s Tokyo office and Ito & Mitomi, Morrison & Foerster’s registered associated office in Tokyo, will also discuss recent reforms and developments as well as METI-sponsored legislation aimed at facilitating cross-border M&A and recent developments in the Japanese real estate finance market.
