最後に、パネル・ディスカッションを行います。伊藤 見富法律事務所のマネージング・パートナーである見富冬男が座長を務め、東京オフィスのコーポレート・パートナーである渡邉嗣道とスタン・ユコヴィッチがパネリストとして参加します。パネルディスカッションは主に日本語で行い、同法および関連規則に関わる動きのなかでも、米国に上場し同法を遵守しなければならない日本企業、同法の制約を受ける米国企業と活発に取引を行う日本企業など、特に日本企業への影響について討議します。




Dear Clients and Friends:

We are pleased to invite you to our seminar addressing key developments relating to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 since its passage two years ago, and in particular how those developments impact Japanese companies. We will hold the seminar on Thursday, November 18 at the Palace Hotel Tokyo. The seminar will be free of charge, and simultaneous translation from English to Japanese will be provided. 

The passage of the Act in July 2002 represented the most significant reform of the U.S. federal securities laws in over 60 years. In our seminar - with the perspective of two years of observation and experience since the passage of the Act - we will discuss some of the most important aspects of the Act and the SEC’s related rules, and their impact on Japanese companies.

Rob Townsend, the co-chair of our firm’s corporate department and based in our San Francisco office, will give an overview of key developments under the Act and the related rules during the last two years, and will discuss how U.S. and foreign companies that are listed in the U.S. are coping with these developments.

A. C. Johnston, the head of the litigation practice in our Tokyo office, will discuss the impact of the Act from a litigator’s perspective - including developments affecting internal investigations, SEC investigations and enforcement actions and criminal prosecutions by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The final segment of the seminar will be a panel discussion chaired by Fuyuo Mitomi, the managing partner of Ito & Mitomi, and joined by Tsugumichi Watanabe and Stan Yukevich, corporate partners in our Tokyo office. The panel will discuss developments under the Act and the related rules that particularly impact Japanese companies, including companies that are listed in the U.S and thus must comply with the Act, and companies that deal actively with U.S. companies that are subject to the Act’s requirements. The panel discussion will be conducted primarily in Japanese.

To make a reservation to attend the seminar, please send us an e-mail by November 11 at tkseminar@mofo.com. If you believe that someone else in your company might wish to attend the seminar, please pass this invitation along to that person. Space is limited, so please reserve your space early. We look forward to seeing you on November 18 for the seminar.
