Drawing on our skills and strong industry connections to advise clients in the emerging J-REITs practice area
We have been actively involved in a variety of matters relating to Japan real estate investment trusts (J-REITs) since the introduction of J-REITs in 2000. We are a leader in this practice area, actively representing investment corporations, underwriters, and sponsors in initial public offerings, capital raising, property acquisition, debt financing, M&A, private placement J-REITs, health care J-REITs, infrastructure funds, Singapore law business trusts, and other innovative financial products.
We deliver quality and comprehensive services to our clients with lawyers from a wide range of practice areas. Our corporate team leads in establishing asset management companies and investment corporations, obtaining necessary licenses and permits, managing board and unitholders’ meetings, filing statutory disclosures, handling other investor relations matters, M&A, and business restructuring. For fundraising, we can rely on the experiences of our lawyers in our Capital Markets, Structured Finance, and Financial Regulation Practice Groups. We also have a dedicated team of paralegals working exclusively on J-REIT matters.
We have built strong relationships of trust with major participants in the J-REIT industry, through information exchanges and the secondment of our lawyers to various government ministries and agencies, securities companies, overseas law firms, and other organizations. One of our lawyers served as a member of the Financial System Council of the Financial Services Agency, which reviewed the J-REIT legal system in 2012.
