Global disputes are becoming more frequent, more complex and more costly as corporations and financial institutions face new and heightened operating risks — including rapid digital transformation, rising expectations and accountability related to sustainability and other ESG matters, supply chain challenges, restructuring and insolvency threats and growing enforcement efforts and coordination between regulatory authorities across jurisdictions. Against that backdrop, protecting your business in a global market takes lawyers who can dominate pivotal cases while maintaining broad perspective.

The Baker McKenzie Tokyo Dispute Resolution practice group is an integrated practice of bengoshi, international lawyers and support staff specializing in dispute resolution in Japan and overseas. Baker McKenzie has offices around the world - in the US, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and CIS countries. We work closely with this global network of offices to assist clients in Japan, other developed countries and emerging markets with dispute resolution and dispute risk management issues.

Our Tokyo team handles all aspects of general dispute resolution proceedings, including civil domestic and cross-border litigation, international arbitration and mediation. We also advise on management of major risk events, including product liability cases, and provide guidance on dispute prevention measures.

Our track record in contentious matters is unrivalled. In cases where adversarial litigation or arbitration may not be in the best interests of clients, however, our skilled professionals are experienced in guiding clients through negotiations in an effort to resolve and settle matters amicably.

Our goal is always to provide our clients with speedy, cost-efficient, and effective solutions in a manner that puts clients' needs first.
