Who's Who Legal Japan - Competition

Hideto Ishida is a partner at Anderson Mori & Tomotsune, and counsels a variety of domestic and foreign multinational companies in Japanese antitrust and competition matters, including those relating to cartels, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, advertisements, distribution agreements, license agreements and other cooperation agreements. He also represents many companies involved in investigations before the Japan Fair Trade Commission and other foreign competition authorities for price cartels, bid rigging and similar serious alleged violations such as facsimile papers, vitamin, graphite electrode, GIS, marine hose, air fare, LCD, Auto parts, Maritime, Libor/Tibor, FX and certain Bond international cartels.

He served for seven years as the first attorney appointed as a special investigator with the Japan Fair Trade Commission and thus has a keen sense of the actual and practical application of antitrust, distribution, advertisement and sub-contract regulations to companies doing business in Japan.

Mr Ishida is a graduate of the University of Tokyo (LLB, 1976) and Harvard Law School (LLM, 1989). He worked for US law firms (1989–1991). He is admitted to the Bar in both Japan and New York. He was a lecturer at the Faculty of Law, Tokyo University (from 1995 to 1999) and a lecturer and professor at the Faculty of Law, Hitotsubashi University and Hitotsubashi Law School (2003–2011).

He has written many Japanese and English books and articles. Recently, he co-authored and published the chapter “Japan: Merger Control” in The Asia Pacific Antitrust Review, and has also contributed to The Cartels and Leniency Review and Private Antitrust Litigation (Law Business Research).

WWL says: Sources describe Hideto Ishida as “a legendary lawyer” and “a pioneering figure in Japanese competition law” thanks to his work on landmark cases.
