Bribery, Financial and Governmental Regulations

Our firm has extensive legal experience in handling matters relating to bribery under Japanese laws, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.K. Bribery Act, and the Chinese commercial bribery law. We have handled many cases on insider trading, securities reports, issuance and offer of securities under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act.

In the conduct of business, issues with respect to violations of governmental regulations may arise. Our office has handled a wide variety of these types of cases including those relating to the Construction Industry Act, the Building Standards Act, the City Planning Act, the Fire Service Act, the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act, the Electricity Business Act, the Gas Business Act, the Telecommunications Act (including ground and satellite mobile telecommunications), the Food Sanitation Act, regulations on finance including banking and insurance, environmental laws (including the Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act) and laws relating to the Basel Convention.

The lawyers in our office, who are highly specialized, and include former prosecutors and officers of the Financial Services Agency, provide advice on appropriate responses to judicial and administrative investigations and inspections, negotiations with governmental agencies, timely disclosures, responses to the press and so forth. We also advise on how to respond to compliance matters, including analysis and audit of directors of subsidiaries, drafting of legal opinions and so forth, as well as make proposals for the prevention of recurrence of violations.
