Our Track Record

Our success speaks for itself: Since our founding in Tokyo, we’ve represented businesses at every stage – from entrepreneurs at start-up to global corporations – and in transactions or ventures on every continent. We’ve successfully handled domestic, offshore and international business transactions including:

  • Start-up, new venture creation, financings and private offerings, partnerships, industrial development bonds
  • Business acquisition, merger and sale
  • Multi-party ventures and other strategic relationships, inside the U.S. and in Japan, Europe, Korea, China, Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore
  • Foreign direct investment (FDI) in the U.S., direct inward investment in Japan and the U.K., “Greenfield” plant construction projects in the U.S. and Japan
  • Software and technology licensing, product marketing and distribution, and others strategic business relationships

Foster calls upon his substantial breadth and depth of experience in private practice, as Special Counsel to the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo, as a public company general counsel and executive officer, as a member of boards of directors and as a university lecturer. Engagements are often with the client’s board of directors or a committee thereof.

Whether negotiating and documenting a transnational joint venture, challenging setting up U.S. or overseas distribution systems, or gathering information about potential foreign partners, we’ve helped dozens of companies grow internationally.
