Profile

Ulrich Kirchhoff’s practice focuses on corporate and commercial legal matters foreign investors face in Japan. This includes the setting-up of subsidiaries and joint venture companies in Japan, mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganization and liquidation, as well as dealer contracts and distribution schemes.
Having studied on 3 continents and worked in Japan for more than 10 years, Ulrich gained a global insight in the different legal concepts and cultural factors affecting business operations of foreign companies in Japan. His profound experience in Japan helps foreign clients not only to bridge communication gaps with their business partners in Japan, but also to solve legal issues in an efficient and practical manner.
Ulrich has accompanied a large number of foreign investors to set-up wholly-owned subsidiaries and joint venture companies in Japan in various industries, such as the automobile, machinery, medical, healthcare, food and fashion industry, and advised foreign blue chip and mid cap investors on a broad range of M&A transactions and corporate restructurings in the Japanese market.
