In response to the rapid increase of M&A transactions, our attorneys are dealing with a number of M&A matters on a daily basis. Our firm has thus accumulated extensive experience relating to M&A transactions, and due to the recent increase in the number of corporate takeovers of overseas companies by Japanese companies, our attorneys currently handle numerous outbound M&A transactions, not only in the U.S. and Europe but also in Asian countries. As a result, our attorneys, in addition to drafting many types of agreements in English, frequently conduct negotiations in English relating to various types of M&A-related legal and business practices (e.g., business valuation method, etc.) in the relevant countries. In addition, we have a team of attorneys who are highly knowledgeable and experienced with respect to a broad spectrum of M&A issues, including private equity funding, joint venture formation, takeover bids, and MBO's, regardless of size, both domestic and international. In addition, one specific attribute of our firm's M&A team is its unsurpassed speed. Providing quick responses is essential in time-sensitive M&A matters, and we exert our best efforts to provide our clients with great expertise and efficiency in responding to their needs.
