Financial and Securities Dispute Resolution
Anderson Mori & Tomotsune represents clients in a wide range of financial products and derivatives-related cases, drawing from our established expertise in complex financial products and derivatives transactions.
The Firm has considerable experience in successfully handling cases seeking damages for unjust enrichment in relation to complex financial transactions, such as swaps and other derivative transactions.
Examples of our experience include the following:
- Acting for a Swiss-based bank in a damages suit that it filed against a Japanese trading house (the amount of damages claimed by our client is over JPY 20 billion, which is one of the highest amounts currently in dispute before Japanese courts);
- Successfully defending an international financial institution in a damages suit filed by a Japanese customer who alleged inadequate disclosure a derivatives transaction. The case was dismissed at trial by the Tokyo District Court; and
- Successfully defending an international financial institution in a damages suit filed by a Japanese partnership for whom our client acted as an administrative agent.
