Monday, April 4
6 – 9 pm

M&A transactions have been increasingly active in Japan, encompassing both international and domestic deals; however, as there have been very few M&A transactions in Japan historically, the relevant strategies and techniques are still being developed.  American lawyers often try to apply U.S. procedures and documentation policies to local transactions, but this sometimes proves to be problematic.  This program, will cover what you should know about M&A transactions in Japan and the current topics including the unprecedented take-over battle among Japan’s largest banks and the new Japanese corporate spinoff law (kaisha bunkatsu).  Although this program will focus on Japanese transactions, the issues to be discussed could be useful in many other international M&As.
