Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

Hideki Utsunomiya is a partner at Mori Hamada & Matsumoto. He specialises in corporate matters, namely in antitrust, anticorruption, compliance and dispute resolution.  

His antitrust practice encompasses complex multi-jurisdictional merger controls and government investigations, as well as international transactional matters with a focus on antitrust and intellectual property issues. He also advises a broad range of Japanese companies on domestic antitrust matters. He has significant experience in obtaining clearances for large and complex merger cases, many of which have been published by the Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) as important merger cases. He is also active in complex cartel investigations and civil litigations, often coordinating with counsels from multiple jurisdictions. He has a good communication with the JFTC and has been successful in obtaining leniencies from the JFTC in a number of cartel cases.

He is a graduate of the University of Tokyo (LLB, 1999) and New York University School of Law (LLM in trade regulation, 2006). He has been a lecturer of antitrust law at Keio University Law School since 2011. He frequently speaks and writes on various antitrust subjects.

WWL says: Hideki Utsunomiya impresses peers with his "efficient management of cases", “excellent relationships with clients” and “deep understanding of competition law”.
