A number of U.S. companies do business in Japan as well as in the Republic of Korea. How do business strategies differ when operating in both countries? What cultural aspects and legal considerations are important to be successful when dealing with business initiatives in Japan and Korea?
To address these and other questions, JASM is pleased to welcome Steve Dickinson, attorney for Fredrikson & Byron, P.A., who will do a presentation based on his expertise and experience working with U.S. clients with business dealings in Japan and Korea.
Steve Dickinson is an international business lawyer with Fredrikson & Byron law firm, and is the chair of the firm’s Cross-Border Mergers and Acquisitions Practice. He represents clients in acquisitions, joint ventures, greenfield operations, export and import contracts, and distribution arrangements throughout the world, including Japan and Korea. Steve also has represented Japanese and Korean companies in their U.S. operations.
