The Challenges of Investing in US Technology Companies—The US Insider View for Japanese Companies


US tech company investment is rapidly evolving due to a new US administration, global technology tensions with China and the COVID-19 crisis. Japanese companies have faced special challenges with this type of investment. In this webinar, we will discuss these pitfalls, focusing on complex data, privacy and antitrust risk issues. Our partners who have served as compliance executives at Apple and Uber will share their insights on topics including:


  • The increasing US and global enforcement focus on technology access and competition and how this poses challenges for Japanese investment
  • Managing legal risks and developing ethical frameworks associated with AI and other cutting-edge technologies
  • Practical guidance on compliance with evolving global data privacy and cybersecurity requirements, including key developments at the US state level
  • The forces reshaping US antitrust law and the effects of US-China tensions and COVID-19
  • Insights for successful Japanese investment
