Anderson Mori & Tomotsune (AMT) is a full-service law firm formed by the winning combination of three leading law firms in Japan: Anderson Mori, one of the largest international firms in Japan which was best known for serving overseas companies doing business in Japan since the early 1950s; Tomotsune & Kimura, particularly well-known for its expertise in international finance transactions; and Bingham Sakai Mimura Aizawa, a premier international insolvency/restructuring and crisis-management firm.
AMT has one of the leading international antitrust and competition practices in Japan.
AMT has advised on many of the highest-profile, most complex international cartel investigations and merger control transactions. We continuously work together with top competition practitioners around the world and are well accustomed to coordinating with lawyers from international firms in formulating and implementing global competition strategies. To that end, our Japanese attorneys work closely together with our native English-speaking lawyers to provide advice and assistance at a level that matches the quality our clients are accustomed to receiving in their home jurisdictions.
AMT has an extensive track record in matters relating to the Japanese Antimonopoly Act ("Antimonopoly Act") as well as aspects of international competition law, including matters involving foreign regulatory agencies. Our competition team consists of attorneys who have experience working for the JFTC and the European Commission, enabling AMT to provide first-class legal advice on the whole spectrum of competition and antitrust law. Our competition practice is highly ranked, having earned a Band 1 ranking from Chambers Asia for nine consecutive years (from 2010 to 2018).
