Companies Act related Disputes
With a profound understanding of the Companies Act of Japan ("Companies Act"), Anderson Mori & Tomotsune ("AMT") has significant experience in successfully handling disputes requiring such expertise. Using our understanding, AMT supports and advises new and existing clients that are involved in disputes concerning the Companies Act.
AMT has represented our clients, both as plaintiffs and defendants, in various disputes relating to the Companies Act including, shareholder derivative actions; actions for rescission; actions for invalidation of a resolution of a shareholders' meeting; actions for invalidation of a resolution of the board of directors; actions seeking an injunction against or invalidation of the issuance of share options; actions for dismissal of directors; and actions to seek an injunction against illegal acts. AMT also handles provisional civil procedures incidental to the aforementioned types of disputes. AMT is similarly skilled in handling lawsuits concerning the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act of Japan, such as those related to alleged false statements in disclosed documents. AMT's services related to these Acts, however, extend far beyond just disputes - AMT routinely provides legal services relating to non-contentious court procedures, including actions filed by dissenting minor shareholders seeking the determination of the purchase price upon their exercise of the right to demand share purchase.
