WWL says

Hideto Ishida is a standout name for competition law matters in Japan and is identified as "a senior statesman of the space" by market commentators.


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, licence 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, vitamins, graphite electrodes, GIS, marine hose, air fares, 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 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), and he has 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 (1995–1999) and a lecturer and professor at the Faculty of Law at Hitotsubashi University, and Hitotsubashi Law School (2003–2011).

He has written many Japanese and English books and articles. Recently, he co-authored the Japanese chapters of The Asia Pacific Antitrust ReviewThe Cartels and Leniency Review and Private Antitrust Litigation (Law Business Research).
