Who's Who Legal Japan - Restructuring & Insolvency

Hideyuki Sakai is a partner at Anderson Mori & Tomotsune and one of Japan’s leading authorities in insolvency and financial restructuring. Prior to joining Anderson Mori & Tomotsune, he was managing partner of Bingham Sakai Mimura Aizawa, the joint enterprise established between Sakai & Mimura, which he founded in 1995, and a leading US law firm.

Mr Sakai focuses on bankruptcy, workouts, civil rehabilitation and other proceedings involving insolvency procedures. He frequently represents financial institutions and large creditor groups in complex debt restructurings and international insolvency matters. He has also served as court-appointed trustee in high-profile cases and as mediator in out-of-court ADR proceedings. Additionally, he has extensive experience in cross-border M&A, complex commercial litigation and crisis management.

Mr Sakai is a graduate of the University of Tokyo (LLB, 1974) and Duke University School of Law (LLM, 1982).

He is a member of the Tokyo Bar Association (and the former president and member of the Tokyo Bar Association’s committee on insolvency and financial restructuring), the American College of Bankruptcy, the International Bar Association, the Inter-Pacific Bar Association and the International Insolvency Institute (III). He is also a working committee member of the joint project by Asian Business Law Institute and the III on Asian principles of business restructuring; director of the Japanese Association for Business Recovery and the Japanese Association of Turnaround Professionals; and president of the Japan Alumni Club of Duke Law School and the Japan Alumni Club of Duke University.
