| November.08.2016 | 9:00am - 10:30am ()

Orrick Tokyo


Orrick’s Tokyo Office Litigation Group is hosting a series of monthly “Orrick Library” seminars to explore legal issues in various fields in Japan as well as the United States, Asia and Europe. The next seminar will be presented live by Robert Reznick, partner in the Complex Litigation and Dispute Resolution Group of Orrick’s Washington D.C. office and Managing Editor of The World in US Courts: Orrick’s Quarterly Review of Decision Applying US Law to Global Business and Cross-Border Activities, on Tuesday, November 8 2016, from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.

This seminar will explore the application of US law to activities occurring in Japan and elsewhere, with an emphasis on when US courts will refuse to hear cases based on conduct taking place outside the US. In addition, it will discuss the connections to the US that any Japanese company and individual must have in order for them to be required to appear to defend themselves against claims.

Among other subjects, this seminar will discuss the rules that limit consideration of activities in Japan and elsewhere in cases involving:

  • Antitrust/Competition

  • Securities Law

  • Intellectual Property (patent, trademark, and copyright)

  • Product Liability

  • Criminal Law

  • Companies with US Subsidiaries

There will be time set aside for questions and answers.
