Asian Legal Business has recognized Tokyo partner Jeremy White in its annual Top 15 M&A Lawyers award series. The award recognizes M&A lawyers from the entire Asian region and winners were selected based on several factors, including the significant M&A deals they handle and client recommendations. Jeremy is one of two practitioners from Japan to be included on this year's list.
Jeremy's practice focuses on cross-border mergers, acquisitions, disposals, spinouts, and joint ventures. His practice covers matters from alliances between multinationals to greenfield corporate and venture investments.
Jeremy is recommended as a leading lawyer in Japan by independent guides to the legal profession, including Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500, and IFLR. Clients comment that he is "exceptional for cross-border transactions ... and an absolute pleasure to work with" (Chambers 2020), "the single best lawyer I have worked with in 30 years of M&A experience ... courteous, ruthless on behalf of the client in negotiations, very smart, a creative solution finder, and has pragmatic common sense" (Chambers 2019), and "The best cross border transaction lawyer in Tokyo and all of my clients I introduced love him..." (IFLR 2018).
The recognition celebrates top M&A lawyers who demonstrate practical experience and drive deal-making to the next phase of success, not only in terms of the deal value but also in the positive impacts the deal creates.
