Atsutoshi Maeda is a partner at Anderson Mori & Tomotsune who has been engaged in an extensive range of legal matters. In particular, he has provided general corporate advice on issues regarding various commercial laws, employment laws and compliance problems, as well as negotiated contracts in a broad range of industries and tackled disputes for domestic and overseas clients. Given the unique nature of Japanese business culture and legal and contract frameworks that are distinct from western practices, Mr. Maeda always clarifies what non-Japanese clients can expect and should not expect from contract negotiation, semi-contentious discussions, employment issues and/or with the handling of transactions. As such, for international clients, he always aims to demystify Japanese law and local market practice.
