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, licence agreements and other cooperation agreements. He also represents many companies involved in investigations before the Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) and other foreign competition authorities for price cartels, bid rigging and similar serious alleged violations in such cases as Facsimile Papers, Vitamins, Graphite Electrodes, GIS, Marine Hose, Air Fares, LCD, Auto Parts, Maritime, Libor/Tibor, FX and certain international bond cartels.

He served for seven years as the first attorney appointed as a special investigator with the JFTC 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). Between 1989 and 1991 he worked for US law firms, and he is admitted to the Bar in both Japan and New York. He was a lecturer at the Faculty of Law at 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 chapter on merger control in Japan in The Asia Pacific Antitrust Review, and the Japan chapters of The Cartels and Leniency Review and Private Antitrust Litigation, all published by Law Business Research.

WWL says: Hideto Ishida is a long-standing fixture in the Japanese market and draws high praise for his expertise in M&A, cartels and JFTC-related investigations.
