Outline of Public-Interest Corporation System in Japan

I added English pages to my website on Japanese public-interest corporation system. You can check what kind of organizations exist in Japan and points to be considered when you establish a charitable/non-profit organization in Japan.

Tadashi,

Please help me to find a bilingual business lawyer I can work with in Fukuoka to start a new business. I have never blogged before so am not sure how to find your blog as I just found it by chance. If you could please send me an email directly that would be great.

Hi Tadashi,

I am another person who found your blog by chance. Now I am studying Japanese Law and hard to find the information. I wonder that is it ok for foreign investor to have 20% shareholding but equal voting right in Joint Venture under Japan Law? or which law I can refer to? I am hoping that you could do me a favour to find out the answer for my homework.

Thank you!
Kukai

Hi Kukai,

If the target company is non-listed (not listed in stock market), a foreign investor can have equal voting rights with just 20% shares by utilizing the classes of shares. You should refer to the Companies Act of Japan.
