We help clients navigate issues at the intersection of law and policy around the world.

Our clients benefit from the experience of our more than 120 former government officials, diplomats, and regulators.

Covington’s distinctively collaborative culture allows us to act as one team globally.


We advise a number of Japan’s largest corporations as well as trade associations and governmental agencies on their most sensitive and complex legal challenges in the United States, Europe, China and elsewhere. Our Japanese clients include major trading companies and financial institutions, and leading companies in the technology, heavy machinery, automotive, and pharmaceutical sectors.

Our work for these clients includes advice on regulatory issues including trade sanctions and controls, anti-corruption and antitrust compliance; transactional matters, including M&A, licensing arrangements and collaborations; internal, Congressional and criminal investigations; and disputes in arbitration and litigation, including intellectual property and energy-related disputes.

In addition, we regularly assist our non-Japanese clients with regulatory issues and transactional matters relating to their businesses in Japan, drawing on our strong relationships with leading Japanese law firms.
