N&A represented a client in an action seeking revocation of a resolution of a shareholders' meeting relating to the issuance of class shares, subject to class-wide call, since 2009 from the first instance. In July 2010, N&A succeeded in defending the client and obtained a final judgment dismissing the claimant's claim in its entirety before the Tokyo High Court. This judgment is considered an important court precedent regarding significant issues relating to the Corporation Law of Japan.

The attorneys who represented the client included Masaki Hosaka, Akihiro Hironaka, Sueo Kito, Atsushi Hosono, Atsushi Mizushima, Masahiro Toshima and Toshifumi Noguchi.
