Investor-State Dispute Settlement

At Nishimura & Asahi, we draw on our strengths across the firm and assemble the most efficient and skilled practice group in the area of Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS).  Our team includes not only litigators with extensive experience in international arbitrations, but also lawyers involved in the drafting and negotiation of investment treaties and free trade agreements as well as those regularly handling international trade disputes, including those utilizing WTO, working closely together to counsel our clients on ways to manage risks and solutions on issues regarding their foreign investments and their relationships with host governments. 

We also efficiently support Japanese investors as well as the Japanese government in the area of ISDS and investment treaties arbitration through our strong relationship with law firms outside Japan, such as the U.S. and EU, where investment treaties arbitration is frequently utilized.
