Who's Who Legal Japan - Banking

Hiroo Atsumi is the managing partner at Atsumi & Sakai, a multi-award-winning full-service independent Tokyo law firm, and is admitted to the bar in Japan and New York. He has extensive experience in M&A, corporate matters, real estate finance, banking, capital markets and structured/asset finance, and has represented most major Japanese financial institutions, and many major international investment banks, on high-value and complex banking and finance transactions.

Mr Atsumi has been frequently recognised by legal and financial commentators as one of Japan's leading finance lawyers and has won various accolades in the areas of banking, securitisation and structured finance.

He obtained an LLB from the University of Tokyo in 1974 and graduated from New York University School of Law (MCJ, 1981).

Under Mr Atsumi's leadership, the firm has built a reputation for innovative and strategic thinking, including structuring and advising on: one of the first whole business securitisations in Japan; one of the largest CLO transactions in Japanese history; one of the first residential mortgage-backed securities in Japan; and one of the first limited recourse loans for a major real estate acquisition.

WWL says: Hiroo Atsumi stands out for his expert handling of sophisticated financial matters and banking transactions.
