Richard W. Rabinowitz
, Of Counsel, Tozai Sogo Law Office

Robert Fallon,
Director and Member of the Executive Committee, Japan Society

Japan’s foreign investment law was originally enacted in 1950 and repealed as of 1980. But detailed study of its evolution and implementation affords unusual insight into Japan’s development as an economic superpower as well as its relations with other nations as international markets become more integrated. Richard W. Rabinowitz is the author of the recently published monograph Japan’s Foreign Investment Law of 1950: A Natural History. Admitted to the bar in Japan as well as the U.S., he has been a practitioner of Japanese law for some 40 years, dealing principally with the law of corporations, finance and technology. Presently he is of counsel to the Tokyo firm Tozai Sogo Law Office. Join us for his insights into Japanese society, how it conceived foreign investment controls to facilitate the rapid expansion of its export-oriented economy, and an outlook on the relevance of those controls in the evolving world economy.
