日本語: Total Access Japan - 米国におけるテックM&Aとベンチャーキャピタル投資の最新動向

The ongoing growth of disruptive technologies has been remaking industries and altering markets. While large Japanese tech companies are accustomed to focusing on developing new technologies in-house, the trend is now moving towards acquiring startups based in Silicon Valley, actively investing in US startups, and establishing CVCs. 

Please join us for a panel discussion on the current trends and forecasts of tech M&A and venture capital deals featuring Richard Smith, partner in Orrick’s San Francisco office and Joseph Perkins, partner in the Silicon Valley office, with the participation of Orrick Tokyo partner Hiroki Sugita as moderator. There will be time for questions and answers and give you the opportunity to receive input on the current market from a Japanese and US perspective.

We hope you will be able to join this session.
