Japan M&A Activity Ramps Up, Prompting Movement for M&A Lawyers

John Kang LAW.COM

The usually quiet Japanese lateral market has seen a flurry of moves in the past two years – fuelled by the rise of mergers and acquisitions work.

Global firms have been busy hiring and relocating M&A lawyers as Japanese companies have been making a record number of acquisitions abroad and more Japanese assets have become available to foreign investors.

“Several U.S. and U.K. firms in Tokyo are currently seeking to recruit lateral bilingual M&A partners to take advantage of a continuing strong cross-border deal market,” said Laurie Lebrun, a Tokyo-based partner at legal recruiting firm Major, Lindsey & Africa.
