Foley recognizes that conducting business in the global marketplace requires seasoned skills and hands-on experience, as well as an understanding of cultural and political issues that are unique to our clients. We have assembled a team of professionals — including Japan-licensed attorneys who also are licensed in the United States, and U.S. attorneys with significant experience working and living in Japan and proficiency with the Japanese language — who are thoroughly familiar with Japan’s cultural values, history, traditions, etiquette, and business protocols.

Attorneys in our Japan Practice assist global clients in conducting sophisticated business transactions across a wide range of industries and legal matters, including intellectual property (IP), technology, and energy. We also handle matters such as cross-border acquisition and insolvency work for both U.S. and Japanese clients.
