Our Capital Markets practice group has long been recognized as a pioneer in securities and capital markets work in Japan. Our team advises Japanese and foreign corporations and government organizations on various stock- and bond-related issues. The team also provides advice on the offering and sale of securities in both domestic and international markets; assists with the development of financial products that are consistent with local regulations and global standards; provides documentation support for initial public offerings (IPOs) and public offerings without listings (POWLs); helps with the offering and sale of bonds, investment trusts and real estate investment trusts (REITs); and assists with the establishment of funds and international tender offers.

As the Tokyo arm of the international firm Baker McKenzie, we work collaboratively as a global group and have the ability to act immediately and seamlessly on overseas stock exchange listings and other cross-border transactions. We also advise clients on regulations relevant to foreign securities transactions.
