Nishimura & Asahi secures victory for creditors in Mt. Gox bankruptcy

Leading Japanese law firm Nishimura & Asahi represented several creditors and filed for the involuntary civil rehabilitation of Tokyo-based Mt. Gox, at one time the world's largest bitcoin cryptocurrency exchange and which collapsed in February 2014. We succeeded in obtaining an order to halt the liquidation of the exchange in favour of a civil rehabilitation procedure, to take place before the Tokyo District Court.

The Nishimura & Asahi team representing the creditors is led by partners Shinnosuke Fukuoka and Yuri Sugano.
