Japan Practice

For more than four decades, Jenner & Block has been representing Japanese clients, guiding companies, individuals and law firms from Japan through complex cross-border legal proceedings and business transactions across a wide range of industries, including transportation, pharmaceutical, high-tech, electronics, energy, finance, telecommunications, and food and beverage, among others.  The firm has also helped US companies with their Japanese legal needs, often working closely with high-quality counsel in Japan.

Jenner & Block’s lawyers have deep personal experience working with clients from Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and other parts of Japan.  Several partners – from both the firm’s litigation and transaction practices -- have lived and worked in Japan, and the firm has among its lawyers a native Japanese bengoshi (licensed Japanese lawyer).  In addition, there are typically several Japanese exchange lawyers working in multiple Jenner & Block offices.  Our collective experience allows us to work naturally and collaboratively with Japanese counsel.  Indeed, Jenner & Block partners pride themselves on the strong relationships that they have developed in Japan over the past several decades and on their abilities to work closely with Japanese lawyers on their most important US matters.

We have long-standing experience representing Japan-based companies in a variety of US legal matters and provide services in the following key areas:

Jenner & Block’s experienced Japan practice lawyers are based in all our offices – Chicago, London, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC, and San Francisco – and offer the scale and scope needed to handle any legal matter.
