JSV provides advice on U.S. law and cross-border transactions in three primary areas:

Emerging Growth Companies and Venture Capitalists

JSV advises Japanese entrepreneurs, start-up companies and venture capitalists in all aspects of U.S. law and cross-border transactions, from incorporation of U.S. subsidiaries, venture capital financing, joint ventures, strategic alliances, M&A, and corporate finance to dispute resolution and litigation support. Practices areas include corporate and securities law, intellectual property licensing and strategy, labor issues and general contract matters.

For non-Japanese clients, JSV works with Japanese counsel in various cross-border transactions, from venture capital financing, joint ventures, strategic alliances and M&A to dispute resolution and litigation support.

In addition, consistent with our philosophy to work with our clients as a strategy business partner, JSV assists its emerging growth company and venture capital clients through introductions and networking, both in Japan and outside Japan.

JSV also provides services to clients essentially as in-house counsel for international transactions, working with the client's legal department and overseeing outside legal counsel.

Fees>

JSV utilizes a flexible fee structure. JSV's standard fee structure is on a time charge basis. However, consistent with our philosophy to work with our clients as a strategic business partner, we often arrange other structures, including monthly retainer arrangements, fixed fee structures, equity-based compensation, deferred compensation and a combination of one or more of the foregoing arrangements.
