Milbank was the first international law firm to establish an office in Tokyo, 40 years ago. But for nearly a century, we’ve led the way―providing legal services to Japan's key financial institutions, trading companies, electric and gas companies and multinational corporations along with foreign international companies and financial institutions doing business in the region.
Our Japan team focuses on Project and Corporate Finance, Banking and Leveraged Finance with particular strength in strategic outbound M&A and project acquisitions. And from our Tokyo office, we’ve handled projects in North and South America, EMEA and across Asia, including Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Mongolia.
We’re widely recognized for our work in Japan and throughout Asia. We’ve been awarded "Firm of the Year for Project Finance in Japan” by Asian-Counsel, "Most Innovative US Law Firm in Asia" and “Asian Project Finance Deal of the Year" by IFLR, and "Asian Power Deal of the Year" by Project Finance International. Our partners in Asia are widely recognized among the world’s leading lawyers in capital markets, M&A, private equity, project finance, corporate restructuring, banking and finance by legal publications including Chambers Asia-Pacific, Chambers Global, AsiaLaw Leading Lawyers and Asia Pacific Legal 500.
