The Government appealed to the Tokyo High Court, claiming that the Tokyo District Court erroneously revoked the tax assessment in its judgment with respect to the overseas finite reinsurance policies. N&A represented the major insurance company in the appellate court proceedings, continuing on from the first instance court proceedings. N&A's client's stake in this complex tax litigation continued to be over JPY 3.4 billion. The Tokyo High Court handed down a judgment affirming the Tokyo District Court ruling in favor of the client on May 27, 2010. The Government has decided not to appeal to the Supreme Court.

The attorneys who represented the client included Takashi Yoneda, Hiroyuki Tezuka, Yo Ota, Yasutaka Nishikori, Akihiro Hironaka, Tsuneyasu Ozaki, Takumi Fukuda, Yoshiaki Otsuki, Chie Nakahara, Takashi Suzuki, Masamichi Kamijima and Isamu Tsuchida.
