Jenner & Block

Japan Practice

Jenner & Block has been representing Japanese clients for decades and has guided companies, individuals, and law firms from Japan through complex cross-border legal proceedings and business transactions involving almost every industry group.  The firm has also helped U.S. companies with their Japanese legal needs, often working closely with high-quality counsel in Japan.

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

We have experience representing Japan-based companies in a variety of U.S. legal matters, over a long period of time, and provide services in the following key areas:

Jenner & Block’s Japan experience is spread across all offices — in Chicago, London, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC — and our team offers the scale and scope needed to handled any legal matter.
