In an article for Asian Legal Business, White & Case global M&A partner Jun Usami discusses the Firm's strategy in Japan, and opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in 2022.
"White & Case will continue to focus on providing legal services and support for a range of cross-border M&A transactions, whether outbound or inbound. For outbound transactions, it will be important to support compliance efforts with regard to heightened FDI regulations and antitrust clearance, along with negotiating representation and warranty insurance, deal protection measures and conducting due diligence that addresses ESG considerations and post-acquisition integration," Jun said.
Looking toward future trends, he said, "We anticipate continued interest from foreign investors, particularly given the expected improvements in corporate governance. Global investment funds will play a significant role in facilitating carve-out transactions made necessary by the importance of de-carbonisation and digital transformation efforts."
