Orrick’s Total Access Japan Event Series provides entrepreneurs business, tactical, and legal education through complimentary panels and seminars and networking events.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe, first and foremost, we do hope you, your family and your community stay safe and healthy. We would like to take a moment to let you know that we are here and ready to respond to this public health emergency and to support your needs during this challenging time.

In this webinar, our Silicon Valley partner Joseph Perkins and Tokyo partner Hiroki Sugita will exchange views on ongoing and future challenges to tech companies in the United States and Japan relating to the outbreak including the following topics:

  • whether failure to fulfill contractual obligations is excusable or not under a “Force Majeure” clause in US venture financing or M&A;
  • relief for startups available from the US small business administration,
  • employment practices in this new environment,
  • new landscape of stay-at-home orders;
  • fundraising strategies and cash preservation steps to take;
  • investment opportunities and how investors might take advantage of those opportunities; and
  • other topics based on your questions.

The webinar will follow an open discussion format between our presenters, with opportunities to ask questions.  We encourage you to submit questions ahead of time so our presenters can conduct any necessary research prior to the event. We look forward to meeting with you (virtually)!

To submit your question, please contact Tokyo Marketing.
