P.R.I.M.E. Finance conducts judicial session in Tokyo
On 6 June and 5 September 2014, P.R.I.M.E. Finance in collaboration with the International Bar Association gave a presentation to the Japanese judiciary, as part of its mission to promote a more sophisticated understanding of, and the better resolution of disputes arising out of, derivatives and complex financial transactions. Each seminar was intended to increase Japanese judges’ understanding of derivatives and complex financial transactions, the types of disputes that have arisen in other jurisdictions and the manner in which courts in those jurisdictions have decided those disputes. The express aim of each seminar was to provide the judges with information so that they may have better awareness of what questions to ask. Each seminar was arranged and organised by three P.R.I.M.E. Finance experts, Professor Tetsuo Morishita and Professor Akihiro Wani, of Sofia University in Tokyo, and Jonathan Ross.
