When disputes involve businesses or individuals based in different countries, those involved are often confronted with an array of complex issues in multiple jurisdictions.

We assist in those issues, including representing an international client in Japanese courts, issuing arbitration proceedings in a different jurisdiction, enforcing a foreign judgment in Japan, and advising on dealing with arbitral awards.
