Hughes Hubbard & Reed’s Tokyo office provides legal advice to U.S. and European persons and companies with business in Japan, Korea and elsewhere in Asia, and to Japanese, Korean and other Asian entities with an existing presence, business transaction, or litigation matter in the United States, Europe or Latin America.
The Tokyo office is involved in merger and acquisition projects, joint ventures, marketing ventures and licensing deals, among many other types of corporate transactions and ventures. The office’s lawyers have been involved in international restructuring matters and numerous expansions of businesses in both directions across the Pacific. Hughes Hubbard’s international lawyers also have dealt extensively with finance, banking, tax, labor and employment, litigation, arbitration and other legal matters on behalf of our Asian clients.
The Firm’s clients include some of the largest companies in the United States, Japan and Korea, including respected members of the automotive and electronics industries, aviation, retail, food, entertainment, sports, banking, textile, real estate and companies involved in many other industries.
The Tokyo office is a natural extension of the Firm's established Pacific Basin Practice, which for years operated out of New York and Los Angeles. The Tokyo office lawyers continue to work seamlessly with those offices, as well as with the Firm’s other offices in Washington, D.C., Miami and Paris.
