With regard to the secondary markets, we advise securities companies and other financial institutions, issuers, shareholders and other relevant parties in connection with the disclosure documents required under the Japanese securities regulations, timely disclosure documents required under the stock exchange rules, sales of long-held shares, share buy-backs, block trades and other security-related transactions.  We also have experience in bond restructuring transactions and debt equity swaps.

 

Further, we are often involved in transactions that require a high level of expertise, such as issuance and offerings of regulatory capital securities and hybrid finance by operating companies.
