I opened my own firm when I became an associate professor at one of the oldest Japanese national universities. As cutting-edge antitrust issues such as platforms, big data and artificial intelligence cannot be taken care of only by attorneys, and interdisciplinary studies with economists and AI specialists are indispensable, my position at the university is a valuable source of advice for my domestic clients.
In 2016, there were too many global cartel investigations – many of which were conducted against Japanese companies. Now, the most debated topic is platforms. Japanese clients’ demands have therefore been drastically changed and they typically require more sophisticated theoretical and/or economic assessments.
GCR’s 40 under 40 really accurately reflects the lawyers to watch. I have been working over the past four years with some of the other attorneys named in the class of 2016, and I am sure they will be the top antitrust attorneys in their respective jurisdictions.
