Sullivan & Cromwell was one of the first U.S. law firms to open a Tokyo office in 1987, promptly after Japan allowed non-Japanese lawyers to establish offices there. Through the years, the office has expanded as S&C’s Asia practice has grown.
The Firm has worked on a number of prominent transactions involving major Japanese corporations, including registered U.S. public offerings and Rule 144A/Regulation S offerings from Japan. S&C is also a perennial leader in Japanese domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions.
In addition, the Tokyo office is active in financial regulatory, litigation/investigation, project finance and FCPA and other compliance matters.
