Restructuring, Rehabilitation, and Insolvency

Insolvency proceedings in Japan consist of Civil Rehabilitation and Corporate Reorganization for the restructuring of businesses, and Bankruptcy and Special Liquidation which are primarily aimed at liquidation. In addition, various processes for out-of-court restructurings are also available such as the Turnaround Alternative Dispute Resolution, Special Conciliation, and the Restructuring Assistance provided by the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Revitalization Support Council or the Regional Economy Vitalization Corporation. Our firm has extensive experience in each proceeding described above and is able to propose a proceeding that is the best suited to the situation our client is facing. Our team, consisting of lawyers with expertise in M&A and finance practice, as well as business restructuring, provides professional support to clients in various capacities, including debtors, sponsor candidates, lenders and business partners. Our firm has established networks with outside professionals, such as certified public accountants and consultants, and is able to effectively collaborate with them as necessary.
