<セミナー概要/Seminar overview>

Any overseas investment involves risk, especially when entering into contracts with local partners and counterparties who may insist on non-Japanese governing law or some form of dispute resolution outside Japan. As we discuss in this seminar, you may be able to take practical steps to mitigate this risk and to manage disputes with foreign counterparties without resorting to formal litigation or arbitration.

In this webinar presentation, we will provide practical tips on drafting foreign law contracts, negotiating governing law and dispute resolution clauses, avoiding disputes and protecting your rights and interests when disputes cannot be avoided, with a particular focus on dispute resolution in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

Topics will include:

◆ドラフティングの注意点と契約前の交渉/Drafting tips and pre-contractual negotiations
◆準拠法条項、紛争解決条項(裁判外紛争解決手続を含む)/Governing law and dispute resolution clauses (including alternative dispute resolution options)
◆政府および国有企業との契約/Contracting with states and SOEs
◆積極的な契約管理の重要性/The importance of proactive contract management
◆紛争回避のための戦略/Strategies for dispute avoidance
◆仲裁になった場合の対応/What to expect if you end up in arbitration
◆執行リスクと戦略/Enforcement risks and strategies
