International Practice

Mainland China

Having established our Beijing Office in 1998 and our Shanghai Office in 2013, Anderson Mori & Tomotsune is one of the top Japanese law firms having strong teams with China practice.


Our China practice has a critical mass of outstanding Japan-qualified lawyers as well as PRC-qualified lawyers, all of whom are fluent in Mandarin, English and Japanese and who are highly proficient in traversing China's business, legal and cultural landscape. Our firm has a group of in-house professional translators actively supporting our China practitioners in quickly and efficiently translating Chinese legal documentation to English, Japanese or other languages as necessary.



Given the depth of expertise of our lawyers and the convenience offered by the seamless coordination among our Tokyo, Shanghai and Beijing offices, our firm is well placed to provide high-caliber advice to state-owned and private Chinese companies in their M&A transactions and financing activities in Japan. In addition to corporate, finance, IP, labor, competition law and tax, our expertise extends to dispute resolution matters as our firm regularly represents Chinese companies in litigation and arbitration proceedings in Japan. 



Apart from our excellent track record in representing Chinese companies in their business ventures in Japan, our firm likewise has considerable expertise in providing a full complement of legal services to international and Japanese companies in connection with their investments and operation in China. We assist our international and Japanese clients in handling investment, regulatory issue, intellectual property, labor, dispute resolution, international trade remedy, and other types of matters in close collaboration with able PRC law firms when necessary.
