Japanese companies often feel like they are at a disadvantage in foreign litigations, especially US litigations with significant costs and use of a jury. We will explain how Japanese companies actually have advantages in US litigations that other parties do not, and further how to limit any disadvantages they may have as a foreign company. Quinn Emanuel and Ryan Goldstein have represented hundreds, if not thousands, of Japanese companies in their US litigation and will discuss, from experience, how Japanese companies can put themselves in the best position possible in a US litigation.
