April 2015- G3 Japan Legal Essentials Sampler With JD Marx

Free economies are clearly the place for any business or corporation to make an extra effort succeed.  However some global markets are extremely regulated while others are very loose.  Japan is no exception to having heavy rules and regulatory in some areas and looser management in others.  Business leaders must understand the marketplace and specifically the legal implications that affect the business as well as the clients.


In the April CEO Insights meeting, CI members will get a chance to meet with one of Japan’sforeign lawyers practicing in the country.  CI welcomes Jean-Denis Marx, a partner with Baker & McKenzie (Gaikokuho Joint Enterprise) who will share his insights in a different format.  We will have a “legal sampler” in areas that are important if not essential for bosses trading in Japan to understand.  Although, it will be a very open discussion, we plan to discuss the latest legal considerations that will affect your business in 2015.  Some areas planned are

  • Data leakage: what can be learned from the Benesse leak
  • Diversity in the workplace, not what you think it is: upcoming changes in labor law
  • Screaming trademarks: changes in trademark law that may affect your brand
  • Selling on the internet: will general terms and conditions really become valid?
