Special Corporations

Incorporated Educational Institutions and Incorporated National Universities

With the declining birthrate, incorporated educational corporations established under the Private Schools Act are being forced to stake their survival on streamlining their management and differentiating themselves from their competitors. Furthermore, incorporated national universities established under the National University Corporation Act are now required to make their own efforts to secure research funds, and their management is fast coming to resemble that of private universities.

Our firm is able to handle a wide range of issues faced by educational and national university corporations based on our high level of expertise and abundant experience. Actual cases include reviewing various agreements related to industry-academia collaboration, dealing with the infringement of intellectual property resulting from research, personnel and labor issues concerning teaching faculty members and administrative staff, asset management, dealing with neighborhood residents, and transfers of businesses operated by the universities. Our strategy is to have attorneys who are capable of providing the most appropriate legal services handle the relevant types of matters.
