I wrote "a Detailed Explanation of Large Shareholding Reporting System" (2016, Shojihomu) and have detailed knowledge about the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law, and currently one of my main fields is regulatory matters for financial institutions, including insurance companies, securities firms, banks, asset management companies, and venture capital companies. I have dealt with the establishment of many venture funds and many venture investment cases. I have wide-ranging experience in the field of insurance (including regulatory matters, insurance payment examinations, mergers and acquisitions, and insolvency), and have experience with corporate crisis management and compliance for financial institutions. I also have experience of numerous mergers and acquisitions cases.
