Services

We originate, facilitate and execute transactions for clients in Japan and overseas. We pride ourselves on the quality of our senior-level and hands-on advice.

Crimson Phoenix offers corporate finance advice on a range of investment situations including mergers, acquisitions, disposals, restructurings, recapitalisations, investments and joint ventures, tailoring our services to the specific needs of our clients.

We understand client needs and deal dynamics, having accumulated in-depth and wide-ranging experience in decision making roles as buyers, sellers and advisors on deals in and outside of Japan. We regularly manage and co-ordinate the work of clients and other deal participants, such as other advisors to the client. The firm adds value at all stages of a deal, including strategic review, valuation, negotiation and documentation.

Crimson Phoenix acts on domestic and international engagements and has particular strengths in cross-border transactions, where one party is Japanese and the other foreign. We conduct negotiations and documentation in both English and Japanese and bring international and Japanese best practices to each transaction, developed through extensive deal experience.
